Jumping Into Learning

Opportunities for Inquiry at Home!

We have been studying the Oregon Trail and the kids and I started a class game of Oregon Trail today.  Below is the link the kids can use to play a game of their own or a family version.  🙂

Keeping Up With the Klubhouse

January16

IB Unit 3:

We are wrapping up our 3rd IB unit on MOVEMENT.  We explored simple machines, force, and westward expansion.  

IB Unit 4 will begin next week!

Reading:  Please focus on nightly reading!  The students should be reading for minimum of 20 minutes EVERY night.  You can read to them as well.  Remember that we need to focus at least once or twice a week on reading aloud.  Students should read aloud to you or someone else to practice expression and fluency.  Students should have both a fiction and non-fiction book checked out from the library and should spend equal time reading both.  Please talk with your child about what he or she has read each day. Have your child:

  • make predictions about what is to come 

  • make inferences about what they have read

  • tell about the characters

  • summarize what they read that day

  • tell the main idea and supporting details

  • summarize a section 

Writing:  We are focused on good introductions and closing.  Noticing and trying to replicate how good writers grab their readers and wrap up their writings.  When answering questions in writing, we are restating the question and then using evidence to support our answers.  

Math: We are wrapping up patterns and multiplication.  Please have your children do Moby Max several days a week if they have not mastered their fact fluency.  We are moving into division.  Students will practice solving division problems using strategies such as partial quotients and the area model.  Please refrain from using the standard algorithm until students understand the process of division as well as why and how the numbers change.  

Announcements!

Keeping Up With the Klubhouse

Inquiry into our Government: we are studying the Constitution and the branches of our government.  Below is a study guide for this unit.  Please talk to your child about the topics on this guide to ensure understanding.  Have him/her explain them to you.  

constitution_test_study_guide-1d2lbq3

Math: we are exploring showing multiplication with area models and partial products.  Have your child show you a 2 digit by 2 digit multiplication problem.  Ask him/her to explain to you when to multiply in a word problem.  

Reading:  each student has a fiction and non-fiction book from our school library.  Please discuss these books with your children each night.  Have them tell you what they think about what they read or what they predict will happen next.  Ask them how the character feels and why they think that.  Ask them to show you evidence in the book to support their answers.  Have your child read a portion of the book out loud to you.  They still need to practice their fluency when reading aloud.
