Math: We have wrapped up Ch. 2 and are moving on to Ch. 3 in GoMath, which builds on the knowledge we have gained in Ch. 2 in regards to multiplication. We will be focusing on multiplying by 2 digits through the use of the area model, partial product, and regrouping.
Reading: We are set to finish our novel, Frindle before the trimester ends. We are continuing to use the novel as we focus on sequencing events, major, minor and flat characters, as well as creating constructed responses following the RACE and AVID method. We will also be charting the changes that Nick goes through and how he develops as a character.
Spelling/Grammar/Writing: For Spelling we will be focusing on the vowel sounds: /yoo/ and /oo/. In Grammar we will be working on parsing sentences. Writing, we will be writing a short opinion piece on what float should be in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Science: Students are wrapping up their unit on Plants and Animals and will be moving on to learning about ecosystems.
Social Studies: We are learning all about the Northeastern Region! Students are studying the states and capitals within that region. Students will also be taking a test to identify the states and capitals within the region. They will be able to retake until they reach 100% mastery. We are learning about the Northeast region, specifically the land and water, natural resources, culture, and landmarks.
Religion/SEL: To conclude the month we will be making our own rosaries so that we can take them with us and pray them at home. We will begin talking about the Sacraments as well as reflecting on scripture. Our SEL lessons center around setting boundaries and problem solving.
Please be sure to revisit the dress code for 1-4th grade.
Thank you so much for your constant support and cooperation!
