What's Up in the Classroom??
Language Arts- We've been working on comparing and contrasting within books. This skill is used to help us better understand the characters by getting into their lives and discovering similarities and differences between them.
Math-We are still plugging away on our multiplication unit. Students are being introduced to many options for solving multiplication problems. They get to pick which one they like the best and use that one on a daily basis. Our test will be sometime during the week of Nov. 4th.
Spelling- Please continue to have your child do their sort each night. It shouldn't take longer than 10 minutes.
Science-We are busy learning about how our sense organs help us survive and grow. We are also working on reflexes, parts of the brain and fight or flight responses.
