- NWEA Science test this week
- Late Start Wednesday, January 6th
- WIDA starts
3rd Grade: Students will study commutativity to find known facts of 6, 7, 8, and 9 then apply it, along with the distributive property, to relate multiplication facts 5 x n + n to 6 x n and n x 6 where n is the size of the unit. Lastly, they will multiply and divide familiar facts using a letter to represent the unknown.
4th Grade: Students will work on solving division problems with a remainder using the array and area models then work toward solving two-digit dividend division problems with a remainder in the ones place and tens.
Reading: Students will work to explore setting in a story. They will draw on specific details in the text to describe events in depth. They will also understand how one event leads to another to create a complete story.
Writing: Students will continue working on Compare/Contrast writing.
Science: Students will develop an appreciation for the processes that shape the Earth’s surface. After considering where volcanoes form and how they erupt, they turn to investigations of rocks breaking apart and creating potential hazards. Through hands-on investigation, students explore the world of rocks and design ways of protecting humans from their dangers.
Social Studies: Students will learn about the indigenous peoples of Michigan. They will learn about their culture, their lifestyle, and how they interacted with their environment.
Students will be given spelling words on Monday each week and tested on Friday. Students are expected to study their words at home each night. To get some ideas on how to practice words with your child, check out this resource. (please note, the directions on it do not apply)
