The students have just begun our unit on Habitats. The habitats they will learn about are the Savanna, Arctic, Antarctic, Woodlands, Desert and the Rainforest. Your child will be finishing their research in library this week and bring home the information. DIORAMAS are DUE on March 15th along with their oral presentation. Practice, practice, practice!
In reading, the students are focusing on nonfiction text features (table of contents, bold words, captions, pictures, index, glossary, etc). While reading nonfiction books, focus on bolded vocabulary words. Point out other text features that you may find. Our fiction focus continues to be story elements. Discuss the characters, setting, problem and solution of their homework books.
In math, some classes have finished the number scrolls and some are getting close to be done! We just began unit 7. This unit will focus on addition and subtraction facts. We are going to take a close look at fact families and fact triangles. Please keep practicing math facts at home. Some students are ready to begin subtraction!
Turn your clocks forward on March 12th! School will be in session on March 17th. Spring will be here soon!!!!
