Language Arts:

Students have begun to read their guided reading novels.  They will be using reading strategies independently during this time and meeting in groups to learn from one another.

Our next Vocabulary Unit test will be on Friday, December 14th. 

 

 

Math:

We are exploring using area models to multiply larger numbers this week.  We will continue to teach the standard algorithm to multiply larger numbers.  Eventually we will be multiplying 2-digit by 2-digit and 4-digit by 1 digit numbers. Continue to practice basic multiplication facts when time allows at home!!

To illustrate facts about alcohol, pairs of students will be designing a comic strip using an online tool.
