Please see the following link for more details and a reading log for you to print if you choose to have your child(ren) participate in this program. Reading logs will not be sent home with the students; it will be your responsibility to print them for your use.

Your child may begin reading and recording his/her reading minutes any time! Completed reading logs are due by Friday, February 15th.

Mathematicians have completed Unit 4, Equivalent and Comparing Fractions in the classroom. Please be aware of the family letter included in your mathematician’s mailbox today regarding the new unit that will be beginning Monday, Unit 5, Operations with Fractions. This unit will begin with mathematicians adding and subtracting fractions (with like denominators) and move into adding and subtracting mixed numbers (with like denominators as well). The unit will conclude with multiplying fractions by a whole number.
Lastly, a word regarding technology in the math classroom. Families may be aware of the newly shared Prodigy Math Game introduced to your mathematician. This is a nice, and fun, math resource for students. It should be understood, however, that if classroom work falls behind, or is compromised in any way, Prodigy may be not be allowed for your student due to lack of prioritizing their work. Prodigy may ALWAYS be worked on at home.
Talking Points in Math:
How do you manage your math work and the math game Prodigy within your day?
How does ⅘ compare to 12/15? How do you know?
Think of a situation where is good to know how to add fractions.
Reading & Language Workshop
Readers continue to look for clues, find suspects, and discover a motive, in addition to identifying other elements of mysteries! We have also started learning about figurative language while looking for examples of it in our writing and reading.
What figurative language can you add to your realistic fiction story?
What are one or two elements of a mystery found in your independent reading or LDG book?
