What's happening this week...
A few things to keep in mind regarding your child's Math Assessment. There are three parts: Part A, Part B, and Open Response. Part A is the material that your child is responsible for knowing or "mastered material". Part B is material that was introduced, but not yet considered "mastered". The Open Response is an opportunity to see how your child problem solves. It is more of an open-ended question to see how your thinks through a math problem. The Open Response is not included in your child's overall grade. It is used as a measure to see what skills and concepts I can include in my daily instruction.
Over the past few weeks, we have been working on identifying literary elements in fiction stories. Your child should be able to identify characters and setting. We are continuing to work on a story's plot (beginning, middle, and end). We are also comparing genres. This week, we read a fantasy story. We discussed how the story, The Big Blue Ox, could be fantasy and compared it to a previous story we read, Sam, Come Back! which was a realistic fiction story.
