We are working on tricks and rules for multiplication facts. The order we are focusing on is: 0-1, 10, 11, 5, 9, 2, 4, 3, 6, 7, 8, and then 12s. We will be having an ice cream kick-off celebration on Wednesday. With ice cream being our multiplication theme, we have a personalized ice cream cone and every time we master a set of facts we get a scoop on our cone. We are going to have fun with this.
We are looking at a variety of texts and are noticing the types of texts we read. We have worked on main ideas and supporting details, and are currently working on sequence texts (recipes, directions...)
Our persuasive letters are going to be great! We are spending a great deal of time reading and reviewing the components of a good persuasive letter. We will be picking our ideas this week.
