We are learning:
Math: We will continue working with fractions and
solving multi-step problems. We will also continue to
relate concrete models to units of money. The
students must be able to count a collection of coins
and dollars. They must also be able to identify the
cent sign, dollar sign, and decimal point. Please work
with your children at home with counting groups of
coins in order from greatest to least. Also, have
them make ones, tens, and hundreds (fake money) to
practice counting larger amounts. We have practiced
this at school many times, so this extra practice at
home should not be difficult. We will continue to
practice problem solving and mental math.
Language Arts: The students will work on using
Inference in fiction and non-fiction, comprehension
techniques, and writing expository texts.
Science: We will continue to study Animals, Plants,
and basic needs of both. We will also continue to
research and create animal non-fiction books.
Social Studies: We will continue our Economics
unit. The students will understand the concepts
related to the world of Economics such as needs,
wants, goods, services, producers, consumers,
saving, spending, and earning money.
