News from Mrs. Gaston
November 10, 2014
We are currently working on identifying and using non-fiction text features. We have looked at the following features:
Table of Contents
Maps, Charts & Graphs
We will be learning about electronic menus this week.
We will be testing non-fiction text features this Friday.
The students need to be able to find a given text feature and describe it's purpose.
Ex.) In a book about teeth, the diagram shows me parts of a tooth. If the text is talking about your molars the diagram shows me exactly where the molars are located. This helps me to understand what I have read.
**Check out the link for a fun game students can play at home for extra practice. **
This week we will begin using spelling city for extra practice with our spelling words.
Use the following link for your students to log on and play games or take a practice test.
Mrs. Gaston has 39 stickers. Ry'Darius gave her some more stickers. Now Mrs. Gaston has 57 stickers, how many stickers did Ry'Darius give Mrs. Gaston?
Some students will look at this problem and say
39+ what =57 or they may be able to say 39+x=57
Feel free to challenge your child with harder problems at home as well.
Some examples might be:
If Mrs. Gaston takes her stickers and divides them equally between Cali, Kaleis, and Mackenzie, how many will each student receive? Will there be any leftover?
