News from the Nest
Week of 2/1-2/5
Beginning on Monday, students will be responsible for completing 3 responses to their reading throughout the week at home. They will have the option to record their responses on a paper reading log that will be sent home or online. The online responses will be done using a website called whooosreading.org. The website allows them to log the books they are reading along with choosing questions to respond to their reading. I will be explaining the website to the students on Monday. This will help them with their reading responses in class.
This week we learned how to name a fractional part of a set of objects. Next week we will move on to representing fractions on a number line.
Students were introduced to a new math website, prodigygame.com, that they can use to practice assigned skills at home. There is a note about the program in their Friday Folder. IXL is also a great way to practice fractions at home. Students should focus on standards W.1-W.18.
