Today we officially completed all the lessons within Unit 3! Our plan is to test on Monday. I told the kids in class today that the one thing they can do to help prepare for the test is to think about three solid strategies for comparing fractions/decimals. We have six of them listed in the classroom! The next fact quiz will be given on Tuesday, November 26th. We'll begin Unit 4 on December 2nd. Unit 4 is based on multi-digit multiplication. In this unit, students are introduced to the basic principles of multi-digit multiplication by focusing on extending multiplication skills and exploring the partial-products method. In addition, kids will use their knowledge of multiplication to find the areas of rectangles and to convert units of measurement. The Unit 4 Family Letter will come home next week.
