What are we learning this week?
Math: Chapter 8 math tests will be coming home in brown folders! I absolutely love seeing how students are being flexible in their thinking with problem solving skills. We will continue to learn about fractions as we add, subtract and find fractional parts of a group in our next chapter. This is a short one! We will continue to use the CRA approach to learning fraction concepts.
Word Study: Word study parent signature sheets and tests are this week. Your child’s new list will also come home this week. Please keep studying!
Social Studies: We will continue to learn more about the 5 Themes of Geography and begin to learn about land forms. Mrs. Foster will be coming in later in the week to help us with a Google Maps project that will have us taking a closer look at some famous land forms.
