What's Up in the Classroom?
Writing - We've moved onto learning about persuasive writing. Students have been writing basic paragraphs that include a solid opinion about the topic, a reason why they believe this, an explanation of the reason and a wrap up sentence restating the opinion.
Math - Students will be taking their division test at the end of next week. They are expected to divide 4 digits by 1 digit, write equations to represent the word problems and interpret remainders.
Science - Static electricity is going well. Students have learned about the parts of an atom. They've also learned about the charges that go along with the different atom parts.
Spelling - We've completed another spelling inventory (25 words) and will be adjusting our spelling groups as needed. Students will have a chance to do the inventory every quarter to show their growth.
