This week in:
Language Arts- Continue our focus on identifying the main idea and finding evidence in non-fiction texts.
Math– Continue unit on Multiplication. Using equal groups to solve multiplication problems and modeling with an array. Students are also studying their 2’s math fact fluency. (ie. 2×1=2, 2×2=4, 2×3=6 etc. up to 2×10=20)
Writing- Moving towards independently writing an informative response to an Achieve article.
Social Studies/ Science- Learn about the adaptations of the octopus and sea otter.
Question to ask your child: “What is an IVF sentence?”
(The IVF is a graphic organizer we use to create a topic sentence. The “I” stands for Identify (the source), the “V” stands for Verb (describes, tells, explains …etc.) and the “F” stands for Finish the thought (refer to the prompt/ topic). You will see examples of this in their KidBiz journals coming home in the near future.)
