What's going on in the classroom?
This week we are having fun with division! We are using QR codes (ask your child about it this week!) We are also playing division games and constantly practicing! Practice at home would be very beneficial as well. Division is a very tough skill-- the more practice the better!
Don't forget-- don't be scared to allow your child to use division strategies at home that may look weird to you! Those foundational skills will really help them to achieve mastery of the skill and also be able to truly explain what they are doing as they divide.
Reading and Writing
This week we are investigating the question of - How does weathering and erosion change the look of Earth’s landscape? This week will involve lots of hands on research and data collecting! Try quizzing your student over their essential vocabulary one evening this week!
