This week we compared large numbers and reviewed for the Unit 5 test. Students learned how to multiply large numbers. When we come back after break, we will be learning how to divide larger numbers.


We read a biography called The Man Who Named the Clouds, and learned all about Luke Howard. We also learned about Latin roots, and practiced understanding the meanings of the words by looking at those roots.

Writing and Grammar

The reindeer were on strike! Students wrote a letter to Santa stating their demands in order to return to the job. Their letters were so fun to read. We also created an Animoto all about verbs. Ask you child to show you their Animoto.
