  • I have already emailed a few of you to set up times earlier than this as well :)

This week we learned alot!

Math- We have extended our knowledge on place value and number representations up to 4 digits! We have built and decomposed numbers using standard form, pictorial model, expanded notation and word form. We are continuing our use with a problem solving rubric to become expert problem solvers and this week we discussed the stage of solving the problem with multiple strategies to show our understanding of number relationships!

Reading- We have continued our learning how to set a purpose for reading. This week that included how to use text features in non-fiction texts and making predictions in fiction texts.

Writing- We created "tiny topic notebooks" by adding paper to our Take Home Folder. This is to encourage them to be thinking about writing all the time! A great idea can happen at any moment and now they have the means to write down a quick sentence to help inspire them later on in class! We also learned how to take those tiny topics and turn them into whole stories by planning the BME and details on our hands!

Science- We have started to build on the topic of matter and discussed how materials can change when they are heated and cooled! We used ICEE pops on Wednesday and Thursday (today) we observed changes in matter while a candle burned!

Social Studies- Friday we will discuss communities and the history of Frisco! Man how things have changed! (this lesson will be continued into next Friday)

****all italics words are examples of the language we use in class. You have to use big vocabulary to learn it!

Next Week Overview

Math: Next week we will work on generating a number up to 1,200 and show how to represent the number. We will also work on comparing numbers and proving how they know if the number is larger or smaller.

Reading: Next week we will be learning about folktales. We will discuss the different versions of folktales and how they are the same and different.

Writing: Next week we will continue reviewing small moments. We will dig deeper into our endings and how we can change them. We will also touch on editing and making sure our spelling is correct.

Science: Next week we will review that matter has physical properties. We will discuss that the properties determine how it is described, classified, changed and used.

Social Studies: Next week we will be learning about our wonderful city, Frisco.
