New snack calendars were sent home today (Thursday) through the end of the year. You can also visit the snack calendars anytime here.
SCHOLASTIC BOOK ORDER: I sent home a book order today so you and your child can start making decisions for summer reading! I will try and send at least one more book order before the end of the year in addition to this one. You can order online, using our classroom code: H4G6X
You can send in a check for the total amount due and the paper order form.
All forms of ordering, online or paper, are due by noon on April 25th!
I added a new tab on the main page of our classroom blog this week called, Technology Links. It is located right next to the snack calendar link near the top of the main page here at Hubbard's Headlines. Be sure to check these out!
The class is moving along with fractions! This week we worked to create fractions on a number line and fractions on a grid. Hopefully some light bulbs and connections are being made. Very often students are making guesses or are unsure. I think they are getting closer to understanding the concept of what a fraction is and how they function in their lives. It's a tough subject to tackle at this age. Support students at home as much as you can.
A couple weeks ago I sent some ideas to try along with a parent note. Hopefully you received these ideas. Also, you can give this a try! A website with lots of links to games and activities all related to fractions.
Earlier this week I posted all of our activities related to poetry! We have lots we are working on, take a peek here in case you missed it.
We have been working on reading and identifying figurative language in writing, mostly poetry. Ask your child what an idiom, hyperbole, personification, or metaphor/simile is this week and see if they can give you an example.
We began our economics unit this week! We talked about some of the basics, which was a review from previous grade levels, as well as natural, human, and capital resources.
Have a great weekend and holiday!
