We are continuing our Word Study work from last week...
This week, the students in the first group will be focusing on English words that come from other languages. These words will include words such as ballet, bouquet, plaza, and sauerkraut.
The second group will be working with acronyms. They will be working on acronyms such as SCUBA - Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus
We will also be...
studying the poem "Words as Free As Confetti" by Pat Mora
The rest of the year will be spent working at each student's individual pace to review skills that we have been working on this school year. Skills will included dividing fractions, dividing decimals, multiplying fractions, multiplying decimals, finding area and perimeter of complex figures, and many other skills. This will be a time for each student to practice what he/she needs!
