Agenda for week of November 14
Reading: We will read Chapters 14- 18 of Charlotte's web this week. I may assign a chapter to read at home. I would like to finish the book before our Thanksgiving break. We will focus on the parts of the plot of the story and determining the theme of the book. Our grammar focus will be plural nouns.
Math: Friday we began a new unit in solving word problems. The focus this week will be solving word problems using both division and multiplication. We will dabble in algebraic equations (using a letter to represent the missing factor)
Please continue to work on learning the multiplication facts at home. They should know 2, 5, 10, 11, and we are working on 3s.
Social Studies: Students will be assessed over the Northeastern states on Wednesday. In addition, they will be reading about how the states' borders were determined and about regions in the US. They will be creating another vocabulary foldable with key terms on it. Some work may be done out of class.
Science: Friday is our STEM day. Students will make a Ferris wheel for Fern since she is taking Wilbur to the fair. The Ferris wheel is what she says she is looking forward to.
