Steps to building our Terrarium!

What are we learning this week?

Phonics: review of Latin suffixes: -ary, -ity, -age, and -ence

Math: We will start off the week by taking a test over our Topic 8: Numerical Expressions, Patterns, and Relationships. The rest of the week we will begin our Topic 9: adding and subtracting fractions. We will look at least common denominators so please remind your child to practice those multiplication facts so they are able to find these factors quickly.

Science: This week we will be looking at the scientific method and applying that to our terrarium observations. We will learn how to collect data on a table over a period of time. We will also take a closer look at the water cycle and do a couple of experiments to observe the water cycle.

Reading and Writing: We will be focusing on creating constructed responses from questions asked about our reading. While we read and understand texts on the water cycle, we will highlight the main idea and supporting details that accurately support the main idea.
