What are we learning?

Math: In math students are working on long division with both whole numbers and decimals as dividends. Students are working to estimate, solve, a check for the quotient. This week, students will complete their end of module assessment on Thursday and Friday.

Reading: In reading, students are diving into a new text- Peak! This is a challenging text! Students are working hard to annotate as they read, complete a word log for unknown words, and blog. Students are required to complete two blog entries per week in the classroom. Please look out for a parent note that was sent home last week to see how you can view and comment on your own child's blogs! Students will be reading approximately 50 pages/week.

Social Studies: This week students will discover the business of exploring. Students will determine the cost and reward of exploration. Students will be taking an open note test on Friday.

Writing: I am so excited to begin our research writing unit this week! On Monday, students will be writing a pre-assessment on Kangaroos to help our writers set strong goals for the unit. Students will then begin researching an explorer and learning about the structure and organization of a research paper!
