In The Classroom:
This week in math we will continue looking at adding three and four digit numbers. Students will continue to practice “carrying” over numbers to the next place value while adding. We will learn more about the use of the break apart strategy and place value to add. We will also review addition properties such as commutative, associative and identity properties.
In literacy we will continue to read in our small groups the book I Survived, Extreme Weather by Laurn Tarshis. This week students will read about an Alaskan avalanche. We will continue to build reading stamina in our small groups. Students will focus on learning the cursive letter p & t and we will review adverbs during our weekly grammar lessons.
In social studies we will continue learning about early explorers. This week students will complete an activity about early european explorers and their voyage journey, goals and results. These explorers include Chirstopher Columbus, John Cabot, Jaun Ponce de Leon, Giovanni de Verrazzano, Jacques Cartier, Hernando de Soto, Samuel de Champlain and Henry Hudson.
We will have our spelling test this week on Friday. Please look below for a copy of this week's words. Please have your student practice at home if additional practice is needed each week.
