In Math we will be finishing up fractions with learning to reduce to simplest form, order fractions with like and unlike denominators, and finish the week with a test. The following week we will begin to work on finding the area of a rectangular shape.
In Language Arts we are working on Information texts and how the author formats the information. We are working on making connections and inferences, which should be reinforced with the new reading log homework. We are also stepping up our writing, and plan to work on an essay each week. Paragraph of the Week homework has now be extended a bit where students will be now writing multiple paragraphs.
In Science we were working with crayfish and how their structures and behaviors allow them to survive in their habitat. We are starting to go into our own structures that support life.
Have a good week! Lets hope the groundhog doesn't see its shadow!
