We have just completed the time and measurement unit. The homework I send home always follows my lesson for the day, so you should have been hearing about capacity and mass. I brought in a lot of different sized bottles and containers when we started capacity. The children compared the different containers and were able to determine which containers would hold the most, which containers would hold the same amount, etc.

We have read clocks and determined elapsed time by using number lines. When they use the number line to determine the elapsed time, their answers are more accurate.

Our test is tomorrow. We reviewed with a power point the last couple of days.

We will begin a unit on area and perimeter Monday.

I have stopped Math Rules until after the Milestone. However, I will give out new logic puzzles for anyone who is interested tomorrow.

Please continue to encourage your child to work carefully and show work.

Thanks for all you do.
