News from the Nest
Week of 1/4-1/8
WEEK IN REVIEW
Please see Mrs. Sayre's blog on the benefits of learning to code (pictures too!)
During this unit students will be choosing topics they feel strongly about and giving reasons to convince others to support their opinion. The first week will be spent developing strategies to think of an opinion to write about such as thinking of problems and solutions or noteworthy people and places.
The beginning of the week will be spent reviewing finding the area of a rectangle. We will take the part B portion of the unit 2 test on Wednesday. The remainder of the week will be spent working on our unit 2 real world task.
I will begin testing students on a regular basis in January to help develop their automaticity in knowing their facts. Any practice of multiplication facts over break will be helpful!
Math practice ideas for break:
-Greg Tang Math Challenge (see Friday Folder)
-IXL categories F, G, J, K
- School resumes on Monday, January 4th. I hope everyone has a wonderful break! Happy Holidays!
