In addition to the standard school supplies our classroom goes through a large amount of tissues and Clorox wipes. If you are able please send some of each with your child.
The next few weeks will focus on:
Number and operations. The student applies mathematical process standards to represent, compare, and order whole numbers and decimals and understand relationships related to place value.
We will be answering these essential questions:
How do you read, write, and represent decimals through the hundredths?
How is the value of a digit related to its place value position?
How can you use place value to compare and order whole numbers/decimals?
How can you use place value to round whole numbers to a given place?
How can a decimal be represented?
How can expanded notation be used to represent whole numbers and decimals?
- How can whole numbers and decimals be represented on a number line?
Our focus this week was:
interpreting the value of each place-value position as 10 times the position to the right and as one-tenth of the value of the place to its left

Spelling tests will begin next week. I am currently in a beta testing group for spellingcity.com and will be utilizing the site for spelling assessments this year. My students enjoyed it last year but we only used it for a short period of time. I will send home flyers with student logins so you can view their progress. Spellingcity also has 35+ games that students can play using their word lists. Twenty five minutes of activity on spellingcity at home counts for the spelling portion of the homework that week.
