Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Break! Enjoy some time with family and friends! There will be no homework assigned this upcoming week so it would be helpful and beneficial to your child to have them read books from home, Raz Kids or the ones they checked out from the library, throughout the break.
Math: This week we continue exploring concepts in Geometry. Students will be identifying, classifying and describing 3D shapes. Students are continually reviewing addition and subtraction concepts in a problem solving format.
Science: This will be our final
week on Rocks, Soil, and Bodies of Water. This week, students will focus on rocks and how they are useful to us. Students will explore the usefulness of rocks through the creation of bricks and other hands -on activities. The test over this unit will be on Friday.
Reading & Integrated Social Studies: Using a variety of nonfiction text over customs and traditions students are going to continue to explore the features of nonfiction texts. They will be learning about glossary, bolded words, diagrams, and maps.
Writing: Students are going to continue developing their letter writing skills and learn about persuasive letters. Throughout the week students will be writing various persuasive letters, trying to convince certain people they want or need something. Students will also be faced with a big problem and will need to write a letter trying to explain why a very important school tool should not quit on them. (This activity will go along with the book The Day The Crayons Quit.)
