Math and Science
Next week in Science we will be learning about matter. We will look at the three states of matter solids, liquids, and gases. We will identify objects that belong in each state. Be on the look out for examples of matter around you! Pick a few objects throughout the week and ask your students if the object is a solid, liquid, or a gas.
In math we will be working on solving addition equations. We will introduce students to a strategy they can use to solve a 2 digit by 2 digit equations. We will also continue working on our graphing skills. We will collect data and work in groups to create a graph to represent our data.
Reading and Writing
During writing, students will be drafting a small moment story about a ride (roller coaster, slide, carnival). Students are working to add vivid and specific details to the story. We will be grading this writing after revising and editing as a summative grade.
