We are starting new units this week. Please check below for some information on what your child will be learning. Remember that they should be reviewing their notes every night. I suggest reading through their notes right before bed. All of their notes are in their interactive notebooks.
Blue Math- Unit 2- Decimals: Students will learn about decimal place values and how to add and subtract decimals. They will also learn how to order decimals, compare decimals, and round decimals. There are notes on my website as well. They can always google up some games on these topics at home as well to practice and have fun! We will test this unit on October 6th.
Yellow Math- Unit 5 - Geometry: Students will learn about the attributes of different shapes and be able to arrange them in a hierarchy. They will also review how to find the area of some of these shapes. Creating riddles is always a fun way to study the attributes of shapes. We will test this unit on October 6th.
Social Studies- Unit 2- Reconstruction: Students will learn about how the Civil War affected America. Students will study black codes, reconstructing the south, and changes to the constitution. We will also relate these topics to the importance of knowing your rights and responsibilities as a citizen. They will also learn the steps that we go through to create a new amendment to the constitution. We will test this unit on September 30th.
Check back every week for a new post with information about the coming week.
