We hope that you had a great week back after Thanksgiving! Here’s what is coming up this week!
Math – Students will finish up their practice of finding the area of rectangles and squares for the first part of the week. Students will have a short assessment on Tuesday. Beginning Wednesday, students will start to learn how to apply area to find the combined area of two or more rectangles (area of rectilinear figures). See the video for an explanation.
Language Arts – Students will continue to work on learning about the craft of writing an opinion piece on a topic of their choice. Please look at the videos below to find out what students should be including in their opinion writing pieces.
Reading – Student will continue to work on analyzing the characters in a the book The Tiger Rising. Students are using the text to make judgements about the characters based on what the characters say, what they do, and what actions they take. See the video below for practice.
Social Studies and Science – Students will finish up their work with the three branches of government in our civics unit. Students will begin to show their understanding of the branches by choosing a product to display their learning.
