Reading/Science

Next week students will continue using reading strategies to enhance their understanding of forces, motion and magnetism.


With the end of the year quickly approaching, please encourage your child to continue reading at home in order to meet their 4th quarter AR goal.

Writing

Next week we will discuss how a poet always has a message or feeling to share which inspires them to write a poem. Students will then think of personal experiences or feelings about a topic to gain inspiration for their own poems. They will include word choice that will evoke the feeling they want their reader to feel while reading.

Math

Next week students will continue practicing finding the area and perimeter of complex shapes with all right angles. They will focus on dividing a larger shape into smaller rectangles to find missing side lengths and the area of the shape by adding the smaller rectangles together.



IXL categories for practice:

V.13-V.16
