Our Focus this Week
· Writer's Workshop: How can we identify simple and compound sentences? How can we use synonyms to deepen our word choice in our writing?
· Reader's Workshop: What do we know about story elements? Can we analyze a book's character, setting, plot, mood, theme, and character traits?
· Math Workshop: What are the ways we can SUBTRACT two, two-digit numbers? What addition and subtraction strategies can we use to increase our math fact speed?
· Science: What do we know about sound and light? What do we want to learn about these topics? Can scientists create invisibility cloaks through bending light? (This is our current class wonder.)
Math: Subtraction regrouping is tricky, especially if there are zeros involved. Practice some tricky problems together this week, such as 502-346.
Reading: Finding and supporting the main idea of a story is an important skill we will be working on next. After you read a paragraph or chapter, can you work with your child to write a sentence that tells the most important components of the section?
