Reading: This week we are going to discuss summarizing while we read. We will practice writing down the BME(beginning, middle, end) of the story and practice how to pull out the important information for each part.

Below are some questions you can ask to help practice this skill this week:

What happened when ___?

What happened after ___?

What can you infer about the conflict in the story?

What can you infer about the resolution in the story?

What can you infer about the ending or the outcome of the story?

We will also be using the PRESS reading strategy that will give each student a tool to use to aide in comprehension.

Math: Unit 3 reviews place value, multi-digit addition/subtractions, and problem solving. Students will be to the idea of rounding 2-and 3- digit numbers to the nearest ten and the nearest hundred.
