Our reading strategy this week will focus on cause and effect.We will also talk about the structure of a story (plot, characters, setting, problem/solution). We will review visualizing (making mental images), making predictions, and making connections. In Writerâ€™s Workshop, we will learn to write a strong opinion piece.

## Math

Shapes! Shapes! Shapes! and Tens and Ones

Students will be learning all about shapes. We will explore 2 and 3 dimensional shapes. We will also begin a deep dive into place value. Our main goal with this is for students to have a real understanding of the value of a digit. So if the number is 42. They understand that the value of the 4 is 40 and the value of 2 is just 2. This is tricky for students!

Students are practicing addition and subtraction sprints, These pages help the students to become faster with their math facts. Students are learning to solve a variety of word problems.
