Check out what we are learning in the B-Hive:
Math– This week we will continue with our unit on geometry. Students will have a test on Friday. Study guides were stapled into students’ agendas today. Please watch the following slideshows on STUDYJAMS for more information on these topics: http://studyjams.scholastic.com/studyjams/jams/math/geometry/classify-quadrilaterals.htm and http://studyjams.scholastic.com/studyjams/jams/math/geometry/classify-angles.htm . Students are to complete 30 minutes of First In Math for homework Monday through Thursday evenings. Login information is located inside the front cover of their agendas. Students also have access to “Conceptua Math”, a wonderful on-line math program that is aligned with our math standards. Students can access this program at home as well as at school.
Social Studies/Science– We will be reviewing for the MILESTONES during our social studies/science segment.
Reading: This week we will be reviewing over text structure. There are five different types of text structure: compare and contrast, description, sequence, problem and solution, and cause and effect. We will also be continuing to read George Washington’s Socks. The students will continue to take practice milestone tests during our small group reading segments. Please remember that we will be going to the Learning Commons every Monday for check-out. Please help your child to remember to bring their library books back to school.
ELA/Writing– This week in writing we will continue to look at old writing milestone tests and using the rubrics to grade them. Our skill in grammar this week is prepositional phrases.
Things to remember:
Please check your child’s agenda for daily updates such as homework, study guides, and quizzes.
Please sign your child’s Thursday folder and your child’s agenda every single Thursday evening.
Please make sure that your child is reading at least 20 minutes each night and indicate this in their reading log folders.
We will check reading logs, agendas, and Thursday folders every Friday morning
