Math - May 13-17 and 20-24: We are working with decimals. Students need to understand the meaning of decimals, so it helps if you demonstrate with familiar items at home (ie: food or measurements in the kitchen or other commonplace things).
Students absolutely need to practice multiplication facts for speed and accuracy. The lack of competency with the facts is causing difficulty with completion of Math work for many students, and will affect their work on this unit (decimals) and future units, as well as all Math work in the future.
Reading - May 13-17 : We are using Theme 5. Students have the vocabulary and skills sheets in their binders. We have been going over the 3 elements of a good story: character, plot, setting, and working on the importance of understanding the sequence of events.
