Welcome to the 3rd Marking Period
Here's what's been happening:
In 4th grade math, students are learning their times tables and solving multi-step problems. They are aslo using play money to solve 'money matters' problems. Even though most of use debit or credit cards for our transactions, it's important that students know the value of money.
In 5th grade math, students are multiplying and dividing decimals. Many of the word problems that they are solving involve money, so, again, we are stressing the importance of understanding money.
In 4h grade ELA we are almost halfway through "How to Eat Fried Worms". The class loves the book and the discussions/activities that follow each chapter. We are also working on sentence structure. Who knew that subjects and predicates were so important? Very shortly wer will begin writing personal narratives, so encourage your child to start thinking of a story or an event that he/she would lilke to write about.
As always, if you have any questions, please contact me
