In Language Arts, we are working on Unit 5 Week 1. The skills are: Fairy Tale, Point of View,
Compound Words, Singular and Plural Nouns, Idioms, and Root words. Our selection/vocabulary test will be on
Thursday this week. The Spelling test and Cold read passage are both on Friday.
Your child should be reading a variety of books and be ready to test on nonfiction
by Friday of each week. This is an important routine to keep building content
vocabulary not found in chapter books.
This week we will be continuing Chapter 10 (Time). We are learning to tell
time to the nearest minute, time before an hour, elapsed time, along with
measurement. We are measuring length to the nearest half and quarter inch,
measuring liquid volume and mass and solving word problems using these skills.
This week we are working on 25 multiples of 10 and 11 for 1 minute 30 seconds.
We are finishing the unit on Properties of Matter in Science (Unit 3). Our test is on Wednesday. ThinkCentral.com is
an excellent resource for practicing vocabulary and viewing the lesson quizzes.
Read 20 minutes each night from an AR book. Be ready to test on a nonfiction
book by Friday.
