This week we were very busy, begining with our Halloween party and trunk or treat on Monday. I would like to thank all the parents who helped to facillitate that party it was a great experience and I know the class really enjoyed it.
Academically we worked on multi-digit whole number multiplication in math. I am happy to say that as a class we are improving dramatically in our multiplication facts. In social studies we studied the Declaration of Independence and the Revolutionary War. In science we introduced our next unit of study magnetism and electricity. In Reading we read Leah's Pony, focusing on the cause and effect reading strategy. In Grammar we finished our pronoun unit.
This coming week we will continue our multi-digit whole number multiplication unit. In science we will start our first magnetism investigation. In social studies we will wrap our Revolutionary War unit and test on Thursday. We will also test on pronouns on Monday. We will then move on to studying adjectives. In reading we will continue to work on reading strategies, making predictions and, cause and effect.
Report cards went home Friday 11/4/16 please make sure they are returned next week.
