Math: We are finishing our Place Value, Addition/Subtraction II, Unit 6, and testing on Monday March 6th. Our next unit will be Fractions. Please have your child continue using IXL because it is a wonderful resource for practicing multiplication concepts, and reviewing math concepts we have covered this year. Fact Dash is a great way to work on increasing speed, fact fluency, for solving computation facts.
Science: We are working on our Matter unit. Students will explore the states of matter, changing phases of matter, properties of matter, as well as physical and chemical changes of matter.
Social Studies: Students did a great job on the ancient civilization unit. We are now beginning our second MakerSpace project on this topic.
Writing: We are currently working on our Expository writing unit. Students began by writing a "how to" make their favorite sandwich.
Reading: We are concentrating on drawing conclusions and making inferences. Students know to look for clues in the text as well as use their background knowledge to better understand the text.
