May 13th: Parent's Night Out
What's Going On This Week?
Reading: We will begin our final unit of the year. Students will read nonfiction text in small groups. Within the group the students will read different books on the same topic. They will compare and contrast the topic and the information that is similar or different in each book. We will also be taking our last benchmark test on the computer. On this last assessment students are expected to make a level 3.
Social Studies: In this unit students will learn about renewable and nonrenewable resources, natural resources, conservation, and recycle. We will relate all of our learning to the story of The Lorax.
Math: This week we will go over place value to 1,000 and how a number can be shown in different ways. For example: the number 325 can be said as 3 hundreds, 2 tens, and 5 ones or 2 hundreds, 3 tens, and 5 ones. This skill is very important because it helps with students being able to add and subtract using the traditional algorithm. They will understand why you cross out a number and put a 1 next to another number.
Math Sheet - repeated addition with arrays (Students can write the multiplication fact with the array if they wish.)
Response - Tell how your character feels in the beginning and the end. Explain why their feelings changed throughout the story.
