Our Focus this Week
What We are Learning This Week
· Writing & Reading Workshop: We are hoping to perform some of our plays for other classes this week! We will work on strong and clear reading (fluency) as we practice throughout the week.
· Spelling: homophones
· Math Workshop: We will continue our last unit for the year - "Step Up to 4th Grade". This week we will learn how to divide 2-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers, practice finding factors, review adding and subtracting fractions, and take a peek at decimal numbers. If you would like to follow along in your child's Envision workbook, we will be covering these lessons - Monday (Step-Up 5), Tuesday (Step-Up 6), Wednesday (Step-Up 7), Thursday (Step-Up 8&9), Friday (Step-Up 10).
· Science: We will practice sorting rocks this week and examine some fossils!
Math: Please continue to work on math facts at home. If you are looking for a fresh idea, try using triangle fact cards, which are explained on this website - http://www.scholastic.com/parents/blogs/scholastic-parents-learning-toolkit/making-math-facts-fun.
Reading: Please begin to talk about summer reading programs with your family. CRES and the Hamilton Public Library are offering great programs for this summer! It is essential that our students maintain and grow their reading skills all summer long!
