Reading News

Students are learning how to be responsible with their Daily Five Menus. This week, we discussed word stems and learned about context clues. We have been reading Wonder during our carpet time and we are all enjoying the story. We are excited to dig into theme using classic stories such as Cinderella.

Math News

Last week, we completed addition and subtraction with multistep/word problems. We discussed the importance of underlining key ideas and reading each problem more than once. We discussed workable or friendly numbers. Students learned strategies such as using the number line for addition and subtraction. I am so excited about our math talks. We talk about math with no paper and pencil so we can dig in to a real understanding of numbers and strategies. I have enjoyed hearing what they have to say!

Upcoming standards for this week

4.OA.1 Interpret a multiplication equation as a comparison, e.g., interpret 35 = 5 × 7 as a statement that 35 is 5 times as many as 7 and 7 times as many as 5. Represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparisons as multiplication equations.

4.OA.2 Multiply or divide to solve word problems involving multiplicative comparison, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem, distinguishing multiplicative comparison from additive comparison.

Xtra Math

Please have your student practice Xtra Math 25 minutes or more each week. This will help students with multiplication and division.
