Once we have finished fighting the Revolutionary War we will be switching topics and working on science. As your child may have mentioned, we got to visit the star lab yesterday (Thursday) and had an introduction to the planets and constellations. Today (Friday) we will be heading to the learning commons where Mrs. Nelson has put together a lesson on stars and planets.
In math a huge focus this week has been during our number talks/reviewing our morning work. The morning work is a spiral review and it includes new concepts that we haven't had a chance to get to. In class we have been introducing through skits what to do with a remainder. Students need to understand what a remainder represents and that you don't always have to use it or sometimes you use it in different ways. This can be a challenging concept for some and a lot of reading comprehension comes into play.
