Mr. Eick's 5th Grade
This week and next we will be continuing our book clubs and talking about the children's reading lives and how they can become better readers. We will discuss how we can read more and reflect on the text we are reading in deeper, more meaningful ways.
This week and next we will discuss and explore the elements that are present in good writing. We will compare writing with and without these elements and talk about how these elements enhance the story. We will then begin to incorporate these elements into our own writing.
This week and next we will begin unit 2. In this unit we explore the base 10 number system and ways to represent large numbers. They will then apply their understanding of place values when estimating, comparing and computing with multi-digit whole numbers.
Mr. Eick's homeroom is taking science with Mrs. Wiley this week.
