In reading we are continuing our unit about heroes. This week we will focus on the skills of predicting, using descriptive words, recalling and retelling, and prefixes.
In math we are studying non-unit fractions (any fraction without a 1 in the numerator). We will also begin looking at fractions on a number line. Click here to watch a video describing fractions on a number line. Please also make sure that you are practicing multiplication EVERY night at home. It will help us to continue to have fluency with our facts as we move on into more difficult math! Help your kiddo's out by asking them which factor they are on for Multiplication Masters and study that factor at home all week!!
In writing we are editing, revising, and publishing our hero reports. For science this week we will wrap up our unit on the Sun, Moon, and Earth and we will begin our unit on Earth's Water. In social studies we are looking into how one person can make a difference in their community.
NWEA testing is coming up at the end of the month. We are scheduled to test on March 25th, 26th, 27th from 8:30-10:30. Please make sure to schedule any appointments around that time and try to make sure your kiddo can be at school on those days to minimize make-up tests! Thanks!
Our Smarterbalanced testing will be in April or May, I will let you know as soon as we have the dates scheduled. Each kiddo will need headphones for this test. If you have an extra pair around the house please send it in for your child. If you do not have access to a pair of headphones please let me know and I will make sure to have some for your kiddo! Thanks so much!
I hope you had a wonderful weekend and it looks like we will be warming up a little this week!! Yay!!
