Chocolate sales started last week! As you sell a box, please turn in the money and receive a new box. There are lots of fun prizes for top sellers! If you would still like to get a box of chocolate to sell, you just need to turn in a permission slip!
We will continue our asking and answering questions strategy, but will be focusing more on nonfiction texts in the next few weeks. We are learning what it means to infer, or, "read between the lines." As your child if they know what it means!
In math, we will be starting multiplication. We will begin the unit by focusing on vocabulary and our 5 facts. Students are learning that multiplication involves equal groups of something. For example, let's look at the equation 4 X 5 = 20. Instead of saying 4 times 5. We are getting used to saying 4 equal groups of 5. This way, they can understand the math behind multiplication, not just an answer.
