This week we are wrapping up "Close Reading" and exploring Author's Purpose and Author's Point of View compared to our own point of view.
We have completed our Poetry Unit, and will move onto writing Opinion pieces. **Regarding our one-page journals: We write two journals weekly, in class. If you see a "0" in the gradebook, your child did not turn in their journal. Ask them about it. They may turn it in late, and yes they may work on it at home. I would check that weekly to stay on top of it.
We are currently in our Geometry unit. We've completed 2D shapes, and have moved onto 3D shaped, and will mix in related measurement, such as perimeter, area, volume. We will also continue to review some spiraled concepts such as telling time, elapsed time, counting money, and measurement conversions. So if you are looking for some things to work with your child on at home feel free to explore those concepts.
Minute Math continues every other Monday, (the Monday directly after Weekly Word Quizzes).
