MAP Update and Practice Sites

Our class did a nice job taking their time and showing what they know on their Reading MAP test last week. They even tried more difficult questions when challenged and kept a positive attitude! :) Way to go!


Students may be taking their Math MAP test in January on Ipads. Any help by practicing math sites below at home would be great if you have access to an Ipad or tablet.


Math MAP-Excellent place to sharpen math skills!

Reading MAP-Practice reading online and show what you know!

Prepdog-Take a practice test and sharpen your skills in reading and math at this site.

Math

In Chapter 4, students will continue to practice subtracting two digit numbers. Students will use base ten blocks to explain regrouping and then transfer knowledge to more traditional paper/pencil practice. Students know to rewrite problems vertically and to show all their work.


Students can practice addition facts on Quizlet to increase fact fluency. This site has interactive flashcards and games to help students learn facts by heart.

Language Arts

During reading and writing, students will read books, engage in book talks, discuss parts of a Book Review, read and discuss Book Reviews by kids for kids at Spaghetti Book Club, practice writing group reviews including summaries, opinions and recommendations and then work on their own Book Review. Students will share reviews and get peer feedback before publishing.


This week in spelling Lesson 27, we will study words with long i as in (high) and words with suffixes er and est. We will review vowel teams ee,ea, oo, ar, or.

Spellingcity is a popular site to practice.

Social Studies/Science

Students will review economic vocabulary and skills as we lead up to our Economics Shopping Day. We will read about magnets in science and do several experiments before the winter break.
