Reading

Unit 6- Summarizing

Great job turning in those Timbler Rattler reading logs!! We had almost every single friend make 150 minutes or more!


Next week, we will begin Unit 6 on summarizing non-fiction texts. Readers summarize by determining the most important ideas and restating those ideas in their own words. Summarizing helps readers recognize key points and remember what they've read. It also allows readers to check their comprehension as they read.

Math

Measuring, Comparing & Subtracting with Penguins

The focus of Module 4 is measurement, comparing and ordering two-digit numbers, writing inequality statements, finding differences, and working on a number line. In the context of a pretend trip to Antarctica, students get their heights measured for snowsuits and graph the results. The class records height and other data for two types of penguins: the rockhopper and the king. Students make measuring strips and strings and use them to order and compare the numbers and find differences.
