What we've been up to....
This week we read and studied different subjects, focusing on making comparisons, understanding achievements earned, and life lessons taken from the subject’s life. Next week we will have a biography assessment and start working on a Jr. Great book story. This story will have some homework and information will be communicated in their planner.
This week we started out next Unit with the big idea that Culture influences the way people live. We talked about the diversity of America and how we are influenced from many cultural groups. They enjoyed sharing what they knew about their cultural heritage as we discussed family traditions and various cultural things such as clothing, music, food, sports, and language. Thank you for your support this week with the vocabulary quiz.
This week we worked on word endings. Please support at home if needed.
This week we researched and took notes about our specialty animal.
Math and Science
Unit 6 is complete and we are now moving onto unit 7. This unit is all about multiplication and division facts. Please make sure your child is practicing their math facts each night. This unit is short but will be difficult if your child is having trouble with their facts. We will get into fact extensions as well. For example if 6X7=42, the 6x700=4200. At times your child will have to fill in a division equation such as 560 divided by 8 =? It’s imperative your child study and know their facts. It makes their life so much easier as we move forward.
We are just getting started with our Natural Resources unit. We will talk about renewable and nonrenewable natural resources and how living things use both.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions you have.
