What are we learning this week?

Phonics: Latin suffix -ence

Math: We will be learning how to evaluate expressions. We will then move onto working on addition/subtraction expressions and multiplication/division expressions. Towards the end of the week we will be finishing up Topic 8 by working on patterns and relationships of expressions. We will be taking our Topic 8 test next Tuesday. I have started to upload videos onto our google classroom that goes along with the topics that we have been learning about. You can use these videos to help with homework or to review for the test.

Reading: While reading multiple stories throughout the week, we will be looking at the characters of the story and observe how they have changed throughout the story. We will also take a look at two characters and compare and contrast their character traits as well as how they respond to events that take place in the story.

Writing and Science: This week we will begin to explore the scientific method. We will be creating terrariums and logging in responses as to if our seeds grow under a variety of circumstances. While we watch seeds grow in our terrarium, we will begin to talk about the water cycle.
