ENGLISH LANGUAGE ARTS:
This week we will be learning about the Brothers Grimm through the non-fiction book Who Were the Brothers Grimm?. These brothers are responsible for gathering and writing many fairy tales. They will also begin reviewing CUPS (a strategy to remember the editing steps).
*The Scholastic News magazine and worksheet will be the weekly homework for Non-fiction November! Make sure you read the whole magazine, complete the back, and do the worksheet. The magazine with the bugs on the cover is due Friday, 11/16. *Some students tested out of this assignment. Congratulations! Please see their agenda for this good news.
Students will continue to study decimals this week in math class. We will look at writing them in standard form, written form, and expanded form. Students will also begin to compare and order decimals.
Math facts are still important, as will we soon be using decimals with operations! Please encourage your child to study their math facts!
This week in science we will wrap up our Invasive Species projects, and present them to the class. Students have worked very hard on their projects, and I am proud of their work! Our next project will be creating your own creature, as a small review of everything we have learned so far this year. We will begin reviewing for our unit test after Thanksgiving break! Have a great week!
This week, students will study the Mayan Civilization. In small groups, students will research one aspect of this civilization and then report their findings to the class. Topics included in their Mayan reseach will be government, social structure, art/architecture, writing, job specialization, public work, religion, and cities.
Please stay up-to-date with homework assignments and your child’s progress by checking Progress Book regularly. If you have troubles logging in, please contact our school office at (330) 658-2214.
