Important Information from Our Class!
The Countdown has begun
Final Units of Study
In math we have begun our study of fractions. Students will be exploring how to identify, compare, and manipulate fractions. They will be using fractions on a numberline, in an area model, and in measurement. Tenmarks.com has been updated with many fraction activities. Please explore it with your child.
in reading we will be focusing on retelling and summarizing fiction text as well as looking at poetry. Please, have your child spend time reading aloud to you and talking to you about the books they are reading. Ask them questions about the story to get them thinking!
In writing we have begun a unit on persuasive/opinion writing. Your child will be selecting a topic/problem and writing to persuade the reader to agree with their opinion, or to get a desired result.
In science we are wrapping up our Earth Materials unit and moving back to Social Studies to look at the history of Michigan. I am hoping to use this unit to allow students to select a presentation method to share information about Michigan's history with the rest of the class. More details to follow!
