Hello parents, This week the blueprint rough draft and dimensions chart is due for the home project. The measurements from the planning stage can be used, however, they may be changed (or need to be changed) in order to complete the blueprint and fit all of the rooms together. Don't forget to add hallways for access to rooms!
In literacy this week we have started a new unit on Peter Pan. Students will work together to read and analyze the text. Each chapter will be read, discussed and compared to the previous chapter to see how they build on each other.
In math we are working on fractions. So far we have learned what a fraction is. Students have learned what a numerator and denominator are and how to draw and divide shapes into equal parts to make fractions.
In social studies we are working on a new unit on geography called the 5 themes of geography. So far we have covered "location", including absolute and relative locations and now we are learning about "place".
Finally in science students are studying mass and matter and completing experiments to enhance understanding.
Please be mindful of other important information below including Scholastic book orders, Scholastic magazine payments, field trips and payments, homework, important dates, and additional paperwork. I look forward to another exciting week. Have a great weekend!
