Week of Sept. 7th-11th

Math

Daily Math Practice Set 3

We are working with multiplication pairs and deciding what combinations we know and what combinations we need to learn! We will be using arrays and learn a new game called Factor Pairs!

We are on week 2 of our multiplication practice. Work on multiples of 4. This is doubling the double! Please sign weekly after practice minutes have been completed!

Additional pages from our math curriculum may be sent home for homework if needed during the week.

Science

We will continue working on our Tri-fold from our Egg Drop. We will also be working more with the scientific method!

If you were able to join us for the Egg Drop and have pictures to share, please upload to the link below! We would love to share them with our students!

Language Arts

We will be working with identifying different types of sentences and continue our work with subjects and predicates.

Spelling

Due to the 4 day week, we will not start spelling rule tests till the week of 9/14.

Reading

Students have been steadily increasing their reading stamina in class by reading "just right" chapter books of their choice. They will be required to do writing tasks to demonstrate their reading comprehension beginning next week. Mrs. Peterson has been meeting with individuals, assessing their reading fluency and comprehension to guide her instruction.

Writing

We are continuing on our writing topics and exploring things that we could write about like friends, pets, happy times, or places we have been.
