Reading and Writing
Students took the STAR reading test and AR reading goals were assigned. Students had an opportunity to take a few tests already. We encourage you to read along with your child nightly as well. AR goals should be met by October 14th for the 1st grading period.
In Writing class we are focusing on using proper paragraph structure. An opening sentence, supported body with power vocabulary and a summary statement. This next week we will focus on writing a summary paragraph and informative science paragraph.
Next week students will take a test on Chapter 1 on Tuesday. Students will be given a study guide to complete in class on Monday. We will review the answers together and students will be encouraged to study from this for Tuesday's test. The next chapter will cover multiplication and division. We will begin by multiplying large numbers by 10, 100 and 1,000 (also known as multiplying by powers of 10). I have included a video below on
explaining patters in zeros when multiplying by a power of ten.
