This week in reading we focused on identifying cause and effect relationships, as well as monitoring our comprehension while reading. Next week we will take the unit 4 reading skills test. We finished reading James and the Giant Peach and began watching the movie version. In grammar we continued learning about pronouns and pronoun-antecedent agreement.
In math we learned how to change improper fractions to mixed numbers. We learned how to identify, name, and draw quadrilaterals. We also learned how to divide a three-digit number by a one-digit number.
We continued working on our explorer research projects. All of the groups have done so well and many are already done with their Keynote presentation. We will be sharing our projects with the class next week.
In science we explored movement of objects, including how to describe the movement of an object and relative position.

Valentine's Day Party
In addition to some fun Valentine's Day games and treats, we will also be passing out homemade Valentine's cards. Every child should bring Valentine's for everyone in class (24 total). It's up to you whether you would like to make them yourself or pick up some already made at the store.
