Since social studies is finished, we are moving on to science where we will discuss the water cycle, weather, clouds, and weather instruments.
In math we have covered many different place value standards. We have touched on addition and subtraction and I will continue to work on it this week, adding in challenging magic squares and Exemplars (math problem solving) for students to solve. While we may be working on addition and subtraction, it is never too soon to begin practicing multiplication facts. In another week or so we will be starting multiplication and students are expected to know those facts. To help out, there is a button on the right side of the webpage with all different types of math links. Each student also has a log in for First in Math. Most students have at least started using it, but there are a few people that haven't. It is a fun way to get in some additional math practice. (Plus, we award the "Player of the Day" to the person that accumulated the most points the night before.)
