A Sneak Peek at the Week

Reading:  We will finish Toliver's Secret and focus on theme.

Math: We will continue to review geometry with the different types of angles: scalene, isosceles, and equilateral.  Students will also use the area model and multiplication and division to show two equivalent fractions.

Science: Parts of a Plant - Students will be able to answer the question - How do structural adaptations allow plants to survive and reproduce.

Social Studies: We will review for our American Revolution test and move on to the Articles of Confederation and the Constitution.

Math Videos

I will begin posting videos to help you better understand how I am teaching fractions in math. You can find these videos under the Math Video tab at the top of the blog page.  You may also share these videos with your child if he/she has difficulty with homework.  If for some reason your child is absent, he/she may use these videos to help with missed math lessons.  I hope this will serve as a great tool for you at home!
