Message from Mrs. Langston

I am so excited about the sunshine that is in our forecast this week! We will be spending as much time as we can playing, walking the track, and learning outside this week.


IMPORTANT: Please make sure computers are charged every night! Lately, our class has at least 5 students per day who bring computers to school not charged.


This week, we will continue learning about decimals. For this math standard, we will be comparing decimals. We will continue to have graded quizzes on division, fractions, and decimals this month. Please be looking for them, so that you can see how your child is doing in math.


Independent reading for at least thirty minutes each night is always very important, especially this time of year.

Learning Goals for the Week

ELA:

Reading: I can explain the major differences between poems, drama, and prose, and refer to the structural elements of poems and drama when writing or speaking about a text.

Writing

I can write about a personal experience including two events in sequence.


Math:

I can decompose fractions with denominators of 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, and 100, so that I can add and subtract fractions, including mixed numbers with like denominators.


Science:

I can explain how magnets interact with all things made of iron and with other magnets to produce motion without touching them. I can also explain how electrically charged objects push or pull on other electrically charged objects and produce motion.

Multiplication Practice Always Needed

All students need to be reviewing their multiplication facts each night!
