Here’s what we are learning this week:

Reading:  Students will learn how to do the following:

  • Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information about the physical attributes of rocks and soils. 
  • Analyze data to classify rocks by their physical attributes using simple tests 

Math:   Students will take all strategies they have learned to solve addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division problems, and solve 2 step word problems involving these four operations. Here’s an example of a word problem:

Joe had 4 packages of bubblegum.  Each package had 8 sticks.  He shared them with his friends.  At the end of the day, he had 10 pieces left.  How many sticks were chewed? 

Writing: Students will work on using passages to write narrative, information, and opinion pieces. This week will integrate our learning on Rocks and write an informational constructed response.
