Reading: We are starting context clues this week. To connect this at home; cover up some of the words in a story and have students use clues to try and figure out those words. Those same skills can be used when a student comes across a word that they don't know.
Writing: We are finishing up our imaginative magic carpet stories this week.
Math: This week is all about DIVISION! There are many ways to practice division, here is one: Give students a pile of similar objects like beads. Then give them a division problem like 15/3=? They should draw 3 circles for this problem and then equally divide the 15 objects into the circles. However many objects they have in each circle at the end is the answer, in this case 5. This strategy is called equal groups and is the easiest strategy for most students.
Science: We are finishing our human body unit this week. Please make sure that students take a close look at the study guide.
