Today we went to XTRAMATH.COM and took the pre-test. Students were all able to login and begin practicing their addition facts. Please check the blue folder for a direction sheet to login at home. This is a great cite for math fact practice and students want to master the facts and become a Math Master!
This week we will be learning:
Science–We will be learning about shadows.
Social Studies–We will be learning about the regions of Michigan and the regions we belong to in the U.S.
Math– We will be learning about time/elapsed time, number patterns, and fact families
Writing– We will continue writing personal narratives, working on paragraphing, how to end a story, and using quotation marks.
Reading– We need to read Good-Fit Books every night to strengthen our skills. Also please question your child about what they are reading, this helps their comprehension. Students will need a non-fiction book this week for the book log and report due on Friday. The report sheet will come home on Monday.
Spelling- long and short /o/sounds
Cursive– We continue learning cursive writing
Test Taking Skills–Mrs. Philpott and I are teaching the children some test taking skills so they are ready for the MEAP test in October.
We have a late start day Wednesday and an assembly on Bullies
Have a wonderful week-end!
