Class Mission Statement
The Secret Garden
We've been practicing our writing skills as we started our blogs. Check them out! www.kidblog.org/class/mrsuttlescapclass
Factors, Multiples, and Leftovers
This week we began making generalizations about prime, composite, and square numbers. Your student should be able to define each of these types of numbers and provide you with examples. We will be using Venn Diagrams to sort numbers based upon the categories they fit into.
Writing in math will be an area that we will focus much attention as students need to be able to effectively communicate their thinking. A rubric will be used to grade concepts, communication, and vocabulary in journal responses. You will see some of these coming home next week.
After attending a meeting with the other CAP teachers, we have decided to change our spelling homework. Spelling will now include lists of higher level vocabulary along with content vocabulary that we are working on in school. You will see the new page in next weeks homework packet. We will be using the program spellingclassroom.com for practice and testing of the words each week. More information will be shared at Open House.
