Students may be taking their Math MAP test in January on Ipads. Any help by practicing math sites below at home would be great if you have access to an Ipad or tablet.
Math MAP-Excellent place to sharpen math skills!
Reading MAP-Practice reading online and show what you know!
Prepdog-Take a practice test and sharpen your skills in reading and math at this site.
We will finish Chapter 4 on subtracting two digit numbers before the winter break. Our next unit will be on money. Identifying the names and values of each coin will be where we start. Then adding up a combination of coins to show the sum.
No Fact Quiz this week. Students will pick up where they left off after the break.
Students can practice addition facts on Quizlet to increase fact fluency. This site has interactive flashcards and games to help students learn facts by heart.
During reading and writing, students will read books, engage in book talks, discuss parts of a Book Review, read and discuss Book Reviews by kids for kids at Spaghetti Book Club, practice writing group reviews including summaries, opinions and recommendations and then work on their own Book Review. Students will share reviews and get peer feedback before publishing.
No Spelling Lesson this week. We will do word ladders this week.
Students can review Lessons 16-27 if they like at Spellingcity.
