Miss Wiegand's Class

Math

This week we began chapter 9 which covers multidigit operations. Students worked on learning a fun, new multiplication game, as well as, solving multiplication and division number stories with multiples of ten. Next week, we will continue to learn about multidigit multiplication and elapsed time.


Please look through your child's goal binder to see their graded work. Multiplication quizzes begin next week, please see below for more information.

Writing

The kids are working on finishing up their nonfiction books, they are doing a really great job with these! In the next week or so, students will be choosing a writing project they want to present for Young Author's Day.


Please look in your child's goal binder for their Friday letter home and write back!

Social Studies- Economics

In social studies students applied their knowledge of opportunity cost to producers and consumers. They also completed a project on the production steps required to make a certain good. We will continue learning about goods, services, needs, wants, and types of resources next week.

Reading

We are currently learning about cause and effect in reading. Students worked on reading a variety of fiction and nonfiction passages to identify cause and effect within the text. We also began book clubs today. Please help your child stay on track by checking in with them about the reading schedule they made.

Important Reminders and Upcoming Events

Our field trip to the Art Museum will be Friday, May 6. Please send your child with sunscreen and a sack lunch that day. Thank you to those of you who volunteered to help out! Please check your email for more information.
