Academic Conversations to have at Home
Science: We are reviewing our knowledge of weather maps and symbols by creating a weather forecast. Students will first label all of the United States with the State name, abbreviation and capitol city. Then, they will create a weather forecast and present it to the class.
Reading: Ask your student about the book they are reading. What is the most important part? How do they know? What is the story mostly about? What problems have occurred so far in their story?
Writing: We are working on persuasive writing this week. Have your student persuade you anytime they ask for something!
- If your student is coming home with failing spelling or editing tests, they can correct them test for a 70.
- Don't forget about scholastic orders. Our classroom code is PJZPP
- Character Trait for May: Growth Mindset: understanding that intelligence can be developed.
Homework Help (just for extra practice)
Common Core sheets: I pull lots of math homework from this website, just pick the topic that you would like to work on and choose an assignment.
Math Playground: This link takes you to an addition, subtraction, multiplication and division baseball review game. (Some kids do really well working with games like these, some kids need their own hard copy of flash cards to learn their facts well. See what works best in your family!)
XL Math is another great site for any Math topic. This link will take you to a decimals review that is perfect for what we are learning this week.
