Math, Science, and Social Studies

Math-Geometry

This week we will complete our geometry module. We will be classifying quadrilaterals and identify attributes of different polygons. We will start the measurement module next week.


Social Studies- Students began research on their Arkansas project topic on Friday. Students are currently working on answering compelling questions about their topic gathered from their research. We will continue our research this week and begin working on our Google Slides presentations. Our goal is to be finished and ready to start presenting next week.

Reading, Writing, Vocab and Word Study

Word Study--All groups will test this Friday over the spelling and ability to write in cursive the months of the year. Students are bringing home an additional practice page. In addition, we are doing quick tests over the spellings of sight words this week. On Monday students are being asked to spell the pre-K high frequency sight words, Tuesday they will spell Kindergarten sight words, Wednesday will be 1st grade, Thursday is 2nd grade, and Friday they will spell the 3rd grade high frequency sight words. Students will bring the grade papers home on Friday. Words they have missed should be practiced--they need to know how to spell these words before 5th grade!
