I hope you had a wonderful weekend! 🙂 We have another busy weekend ahead. Please encourage your child to continue to be a diligent worker.
Our Holiday Party will be on December 21st from 9:45-10:45. All parents are invited and encouraged to come!
Math: In math this week, we will continue learning about area. We will find the area of squares and rectangles, as well as composite figures. Students will practice finding area, as well as explaining their mathematical thinking regarding area. We will also continue to practice mastering multiplication and division facts. Students are taking timed tests each day and should be studying each night. Please help your child study math facts each night!! Flash cards are a huge help with this!
Reading: In reading this week, we will be working on a close reading of a Scholastic News Article about the Native Americans’ development of lacrosse. We will also deeply analyze how non-fiction text structures connect paragraphs and ideas in a non-fiction passage. Last week we focused on cause and effect. This week our focus will be on problem and solution. Lastly, we will analyze the picture book, Silver Packages.
Grammar: We will continue practicing with suffixes and root words and different tenses of regular and irregular verbs.
Writing: In writing this week, students will finish their informational essay that has them synthesize information from a narrative and informational reading passage. Students will also be writing an informational essay that has them synthesize information from two non-fiction passages.
Science: In science this week, we will continue our study on fossils. Students will take an interactive field trip and construct a model to demonstrate how an organism becomes fossilized.
