Happy Pumpkin Day!!
Here's a look at our learning this week:
In math, we are wrapping up our unit on multiplying and dividing by 3s and 4s. We will also revisit the concept of multiplying by multiples of 10. For example, 2 x 30 or 5 x 60 or 3 x 10. We will have a math test on Friday on all of these concepts, including 1-step multiplication and division word problems.
In reading, we will be working on understanding literal and non-literal language. For example, what does, "It's raining cats and dogs," really mean?
In science, we will finish up our unit on fossils. We will have a test on fossils this Friday. Your child should know what a fossil is, the different types of fossils, how a fossil forms, and what scientist can learn from fossils.
In writing, we will begin writing a new personal narrative story. We will learn how authors use dialogue and descriptive language to make their stories more interesting.
We will have a visit from our guidance counselor on Tuesday and we will go to the science lab for a special treat on Thursday.
This Friday is the Fall Festival! Please come out for some Fall Fun!
Please let me or Mrs. Levi know if you have any questions or concerns.
