Dear Students & Parents,
Our work this week:
Math - We will continue to study fractions and learn to use strategies to compare and order fractions. Our lessons will focus on explaining equivalence of fractions in special cases, and comparing fractions by reasoning about their size.
It is still VERY important that the children continue to practice their facts every night. Thank you for your support! :)
Reading - As we read our first story, Two Bear Cubs, we will learn how each scene in a play builds on earlier scenes. We will also learn how to recount, or summarize, the main action that occurs in each scene. Our second story, Whose Land Is It?, we will classify the animals in the story according to characteristics and discuss whether they think people, pets, and wild animals can live in the same community.
ELA- Our lessons will include: using the correct past-tense forms of irregular verbs; spelling words with the vowel sounds in spoon and wood; identifying the characteristics of a friendly letter; working on an in-class adjective project.
Science - This week we will begin our unit on Sound. We will learn that sound is made when matter vibrates. We will also learn how volume differs from pitch, and we will explore what things around us can make sound.
Social Studies - Please check Mrs. Toritto's website for important reminders and updates.
