Academic Update

Math: Tema 18 is our next unit! This involves multiplying higher numbers. Lessons include:
  • using mental math to multiply (x 10, x 100, x 1,000)
  • estimating products
  • partial products (ex: 16 x 5 – First multiply the ones place: 6 x 5 = 30. Then the tens place: 10 x 5 = 50. Finally add the two products to get your final answer: 30 + 50 = 80…….16 x 5 = 80)
  • Multiplying 2 and 3 digit numbers

Literacy: So excited to be starting the poetry unit in writing! We'll be focusing on poems such as: haiku, cinquain, diamond, acrostic, and a few more!

Intercambios: The kiddos began their unit on light and its properties with Sr. Martínez!

Spelling: Spelling words to be introduced on either Wednesday or Thursday are related to the topic of accents in two syllable words. The objective is for the students to be able to identify two-syllable words with accent marks in the first or second syllable.

Monday smile :-)
