Academic News for the Upcoming Week
This week we will continue with our study of multiplication. Your students have learned two strategies of multiplications and we will continue to add to our list. Multiplication quizzes will continue and as usual, we ran out of time Friday, so we will be taking it tomorrow!
Students are responsible for a multiplication log each week. I've explained with them that they don't have to do 10 minutes each night, as long as they have all 40 minutes by the end of the week. I want to instill responsibility in your children and so far, they have done great! I explained how if they know they have a busy night, they can work ahead or double up the next night.
Keep in mind, students will continue to have math homework to reinforce skills learned in class as well as Daily 6 Review on Thursday nights. Students will also be asked to study multiplication facts for at least 40 minutes every week.
Students should be reading 25 minutes per night. We have upped it from the usual 20 minutes.
If you are interested in seeing the rubric, it is on my webpage under "Inherited Traits Project Based Learning".
We will still be practicing homophones this week. Students are welcomed to practice from any of the three homophones list on SpellingCity.com. I give them time in class to practice these as well.
Rule: Homophones are words that sound the same but are spelled differently and have different meanings.
Example: there/they're/their or pair/pear
Non-negotiables: different, below, important, life, year
Dash and Dot Robotics
We plan to finish the majority of all missions during those two days next week before Thanksgiving break.
Again, a special thank you to our video helpers!!! We couldn't do this without you!!!
