February 28-Redding talent show
This week: February 18-22
Language Arts: The letter of the week is lower case x. The word of the week is dragon. For the second semester our focus is basic comprehension. If you read your child a story at home, you can ask them to describe a particular character. You can talk about the setting of the story. You can ask what happend first or last, how a character felt etc.
Math: We aren't doing a number of the week anymore. We are focusing more on skip counting. Students are counting by 5s daily. The shape of the week is cube. The monetary unit of the week is a dollar. As always, we are working on graphing. Imbedded within graphing we work on tally marks, rote counting, greater than less than, most/least and equal. Students in grades 4 and up are working on calculator skills. Everyone is working on "dollar up" math strategy.
Please continue to work on time span at home. We do it on the hour. I give students a scenario such as "I went to Walmart at 3:00. I shopped for 2 hours. What time did I get home?" We use an oversized clock and make the short hand jump two times to get the answer. You could also use a number line to make two jumps.
We are still working on counting grids, groups of 100s, 10s and ones. How many is a group of 100, 2 groups of 10s and 3 ones?
Science: This weeks News2You, features the upcoming movie "How to Train Your Dragon 3" We will be doing a science experiment based on the movie where we measure the temperature of water while freezing it.
Social Studies: We will be learning mapping skills and what direction north, south, east and west are.
Craft: We will be making dragons.
Life Skills: We will be making Fruit Fury Salad.
