Here's the Scoop!
In Mathematics we will be completing chapter 2, dividing and multiplying whole numbers with mental math and problem solving. Students will take the chapter 2 test on Monday, November 23rd. The next mathematics unit will focus on fractions and mixed numbers.
Students are reading historical fiction. They are focusing on using context to determine the meanings of unfamiliar words and making connections between texts. Our class read is Blood on the River by Elisa Carbone. It's a story about a boy who serves Captain John Smith as he sails to the New World and establishes Jamestown.
Students have begun a spelling and grammar inquiry time at the end of the day. They will also be working on oral fluency with weekly readings of poetry beginning the week after Thanksgiving.
