Please encourage your child to practice XtraMath at home. There are many students who have not met the multiplication or division goal of accurately completing 100 problems in 3 minutes. The third quarter goal is a mix of these operations.
Students worked to find card matches for equivalent fractions
In Literacy we have been learning about point of view, identifying text written in different points of view, and writing from different points of view, as well. In grammar, we have been focusing on conjunctions and interjections and will move to prepositions next week.
Next week, students will be practicing "on-demand" writing in preparation for some of the performance based writing prompts that students will have to perform during the KS State Assessments this year.
For this month's book report, students are reading a biography of their choice. They will be creating a timeline, I Am poem, and bottle buddy to demonstrate their learning. Students need a 2-liter soda bottle for the body of their "buddy," and I will provide them with the Styrofoam ball for the head. Book reports are due January 30.
