Welcome back! It's a new year and a fresh start!
Wolf PACKage upadates...
We're jumping into fractions this week. The students will need to consistently and independently understand and represent that a fraction is formed by partitioning shapes into equal groups, partitioning a number line into equal sections, and the relationship between equivalent fractions. Here are some games that you can bookmark and play at home.
We'll start a new extended literary text this week. We'll be working through various comprehension strategies as we try to understand the text, make connections, make predictions, identify the main idea, visualize, and understand the relationship between cause and effect. We'll also continue to work on understanding characters (feelings, motivations, and traits) and how they move the story along and affect the other characters. These standards are also met in small, guided reading groups. The kids will be writing more as they reflect and respond to various events in the chapters we read.
The students are now encouraged to independently read for 30 minutes each evening.
