Assignments and Missing Work
Peek at the Week!
Math: In math this week, we will be continuing our unit on factors and multiples! I have included pictures below of our factor and multiple characters. We have assigned each term a character with a story in order to help the students learn the vocabulary. Also, in order to be successful in this unit, students really need to have great multiplication fluency. If they do not know their facts, this can be a difficult and time consuming task for them. Please support your student by making sure that they are comfortable with their multiplication facts!
Language Arts: We will continue accountability in daily five this week! Each day, the students will track their choices and what they accomplished during each round. Students will have the option to listen to reading, read to someone, read to self, work on words, and work on writing.
During writing, we will begin a unit on biographic sketches. This is a really neat unit that I think student's will benefit from greatly, so ask them about it next week!
Social Studies: We will be continuing our unit on North Carolina Government this week. We have specifically been studying the affect that colonial events have had on governing documents. That will continue this week, with the addition of analyzing our North Carolina Constitution.
