Hope you had a wonderful track out with your family! I am excited to start the 2nd half of our year and to see all of my students!
In math we will review our multiplication and division concepts and then will move into learning about area and perimeter. I have many fun hands on activities planned for this unit and look forward to seeing lots of creativity. We will continue taking our fact fluency multiplication quizzes a few times a week.
In reading we will become detectives as we spend time learning about the mystery genre. Our next read aloud will be a mystery as well. We will then move into dramas and poetry. For each of these we will discuss what makes the genre unique and what items we look for in each. Our class will be participating in reader's theater as we step into the role of each character.
Our next science unit is called "Objects in the Sky" and we will be learning about the sun, moon, stars, and planets as well as how the systems are connected. This unit tends to be a favorite.
We will continue doing teambuilding and collaborative activities weekly that I look forward to sharing with you throughout the quarter.
