Students have been successful in explaining how to add two digit addition problems with and without regrouping. Super Job! We will finish Chapter 3 this week and move into Chapter 4 on subtracting two digit numbers. We will also practice interpreting information from graphs.
Students can practice addition facts on Quizlet to increase fact fluency. This site has interactive flashcards and games students can play to learn facts. Students may need to study the same set of facts for more than one week before moving on to a new set. No quiz the week of Thanksgiving.
Students will go back to the text to find answers to questions in reading. They will learn how to "turn the question around," to start their answer in a complete sentence.
This week in spelling Lesson 25, we will study words with suffixes -ing, - s and -es.
Spellingcity is a popular site to practice.
No spelling test the week of Thanksgiving.
In writing, students will write an opinion piece about the First Thanksgiving. They will decide if they would like to attend and then explain their answer.
Students can try these games for extra practice with economic skills.
