This week we started with chapter 9 in math, which has been focusing more on fractions. In this chapter, we will be comparing fractions with like denominators, like numerators, and putting fractions in order from least to greatest. Manipulatives and illustrations have been of great help on this skill and I feel the students are grasping this concept much quicker than I originally thought they would. So far I am very pleased with their progress in math!
In reading, we read Goodbye, 382 Shin Dang Dong. We took a test on Friday along with a spelling and AR test on the story. Everyone was on the ball and completed the tests with great success. Next week, we will begin with a story titled Jalapeño Bagels. We will be focusing on the skill of drawing conclusions.
Social Studies will be covering chapter 8 over our local, state, and national governments. We will then move back in to science with motion and speed.
Thank you to those that showed up for your scheduled conference. They are usually more brief in the spring than the fall conferences.
Thanks for all you do,
