Welcome to our SMORE flyer update!
Have a great weekend!
We have gotten in the groove for smoothly switching classes for math instruction. Math 5 students are working on the geometry unit complete with measuring and identifying angles, triangles and quadrilaterals. Math 5/6 is work on order of operations. Please continue to brush up on all of those math facts at home - mastery of the facts makes math much less stressful! :)
I showed the kids an excellent site for finding the guided reading level of the books they are reading: http://www.scholastic.com/bookwizard/ Have your 5th grader show you how helpful it is!
Currently, our read aloud is Chasing Vermeer by Blue Balliett; this book is part mystery and part art appreciation! Our reading mini-lessons center around this book so students are building auditory processing skills as they must applying their comprehension to various assignments.
