Reading : Our Reading Goals For The Week

This week we will be working on the following skills in reading:


  1. Text Structure
  2. Fiction vs Non Fiction - Being able to identify the difference between the two.
  3. Sequence of Events - Identifying the sequential order of events in a story, and also being able to retell the story in the same sequence in which things happened.

Math: Our Math Goals For The Week

This week we will be working on the following skills:



  1. Adding 3 digit numbers by using models and then advancing on to use mental math to solve.
  2. Subtracting 3 digit numbers by using models and then advancing on to use mental math to find the missing part.

**Identifying when to borrow or regroup is an on going skill. Please feel free to help reinforce this skill with activities at home.**

Science: Our Science Goal For The Week

We are started our engineering unit. Over the next few weeks, students will be working as chemical engineers to answer the question:

Is it possible to improve the process for making high-quality play dough?

Throughout this unit, students will show their learning by:

  • gathering and analyzing data about how play dough materials interact when mixed
  • designing tests and establishing criteria to measure how well a play dough process produces a desired result
  • improving a play dough process by creating a sample of play dough

Because science and engineering projects are hands-on, materials are often needed. Several materials necessary for this unit are listed below, and if you have any of these materials available, your donation would be greatly appreciated.


**We still need some materials for our engineering unit. Please click on the link below if you are able to donate any.**
