Our Focus this Week
What We are Learning This Week
· Reading & Writing Workshop: We will be learning about types of figurative language (onomatopoeia, alliteration, & simile). Our driving question will be how we can incorporate these elements into our own poetry.
· Spelling: Suffixes -er and -est (comparative and superlative)
· Math Workshop: Fractions - We will learn how to identify and write a fraction, as well as how to place fractions on a number line. If you would like to follow our learning in your Envision math books at home, we will be covering these lessons... Tuesday (9-1), Wednesday (9-2), Thursday (9-3), and Friday (9-5). We will practice problem-solving skills throughout the next two weeks, so lesson 9-4 would be helpful to review as well.
· Science: We will begin our measurement unit by looking at units for measuring length.
Math: Fraction problem-solving (lesson 9-4 in the Envision math workbooks) will be difficult for many students. If you have time this week, please review this content at home. Thank you!
Reading: Mrs. Lederach shared with me that a research study showed great readers will read around 5,000 words a day. Please continue to make time in your evening schedules for your child to read, read, read!
