Welcome back to a new year! It was a great December, full of celebration and fun! Now, as January chills our bodies, our minds must heat up with lots of new learning!
Math: We are onto Unit 4, which now combines all four operations (+-x/) in solving story problems. We are learning beginning algebra and how fun that can be!
Writing: We continue to write personal essays and we are learning the formal structure that supports writing a good essay. Literary essays are the final portion of this unit which we are aiming to get to by the end of this month.
Reading: In combining our unit of informational reading with our social studies unit on government, it makes for some great classroom discussions on how our government works and why we can have faith in it! We also get to see how informational writing has different structures used to convey information to the reader.
Science: Mr. Bowen is teaching away on the Sun, Moon, and Earth unit! Ask your students about what they are learning and let me know if you have any questions!
Keep up that reading every night and MobyMax fluency practice! We are seeing great gains in all of our students! Thanks for sending me such a SUPER-DUPER bunch of KIDS!!
