**Tuesday, March 5th is an early release day.
This week in reading we will be reading the non-fictional story Me…Jane by Patrick McDonnell. We will use this story to begin our discussion on biographies, or stories about peoples’ lives. Through this story we focus on a story’s structure.
We will also be learning about comparative adjectives. We know that adjectives are describing words. We use comparative adjectives to compare between two things. We use the suffix -er to compare these things. Check out a couple examples used in sentences below.
We will be working on the phonics sounds ou/ow as well.
This week in math we will continuing learning about fractions. When we talk about fractions we talk about finding the part of a whole. Check out the video below for a few examples of real life fractions.
We will also be reviewing and testing what we have learned so far about shapes and fractions. Students will be tested over the following materials:
- Identifying polygons
- Identifying quadrilaterals
- Identifying and drawing congruent shapes
- Identifying 2D and 3D shapes (name, how many faces, vertices, etc.)
- Identifying and making fraction
Thanks for stopping by! Check back next week for more updates on our learning!
