Reading ~ We will be presenting our PBL Recycling Project tomorrow to one of our administrators. Mrs. Neely will be here to see us discuss recycling and what it means to us. Please dress nice. We will also be working in small book club groups to talk about books we are reading. They will be using all comprehension skills taught to dive deep into the books for a better understanding.
Writing ~ We are preparing for Mother’s Day! I know you will enjoy your special gift!
Math ~ We are reviewing inches and feet in measuring. We are also learning to measure in centimeters. We are comparing the two types of measuring and also learning to estimate before finding the correct measurement using the standard unit. The students are also working on problem solving and quick computation of simple addition.
Science ~ We are completing our research of the science topic we chose and playing our games we created. We are also learning about plants and their parts.
Homework: We will have a addition mixed page of computation and problem solving. We are working on helping our students become fluent in simple math computation. We will be having timed tests in the next couple of weeks to see how quick they can recall basic facts in addition. We will then move onto subtraction.
Reading Homework: Please have them continue to read each night. Their reading will help them have better book talks in stations each day.
Assessments: We will have a reading passage assessment on Thursday and a Math assessment over measurement and problem solving on Friday.
Thank you for all of your continued support in helping your child grow and learn at school!
