Week of April 24
I hope you had a wonderful weekend!
Here is what's happening this week:
Math: This week, we will be learning about area and how it relates to perimeter. We will be calculating area of different shapes, and we will be looking at how shapes with the same area can have different perimeters.
I will not be sending math homework on Tuesday and Wednesday.
If time allows, I encourage students to practice their multiplication and division facts at home so that they will become fluent with them.
Reading: This week, we will continue to read and work on understanding informational texts. We will identify the main idea and apply supporting details. We will use text features such as photographs, charts, captions, headings, and subheadings to help us understand nonfiction text. We will also work on previewing texts, stopping to think, and writing nonfiction.
Writing: We are finishing typing our opinion pieces. The students have identified a product that they really like, and they have written opinion-based endorsements of those products. The students are in the final editing stage. We worked really hard on writing effective introductions and conclusions.
Word Study: We will be learning about the use of commas in sentences. We will be writing complex sentences.
Health: We will finish our about nutrition this week. There will be a short quiz on Thursday. I will send home a study guide on Tuesday.
Science: We will begin to learn about energy and resources. Some resources provide energy. Heat, electrical energy, light, sound and magnetic energy are forms of energy.
Have a wonderful week!
