OBJECTIVES:

  • Math - We will solve one-step and two-step problems involving multiplication and division within 100 using strategies based on objects; pictorial models, including arrays, area models, and equal groups; properties of operations; or recall of facts.
  • Science - We will identify and compare different landforms including mountains, hills, valleys and plains. We will also investigate rapid changes in earth’s surface, such as volcanic eruptions, earthquakes and landslides. We will explore and record how soils are formed by weathering of rock and the decomposition of animal remains.
  • Reading - We will distinguish between facts and opinions in a text.
  • Language Arts - We will use apostrophes correctly.
  • Social Studies - We will explain how the Age of Exploration and its key explorers affected Native American communities, created new non-Native communities, and expanded into new areas of the southwest.

HOMEWORK:

    • Math - Please begin studying multiplication facts through 12 for ten to fifteen minutes per day. . We will be taking a 2 minute timed quiz (starting with the 2’s) each day until all students have memorized their math facts through 12. They should be able to tell you which number they are on! This can be done using flash cards (bought or homemade), any website that offers practice for multiplication math facts to 12, and/or any math apps for tablets, iPads, or smartphones. They also have accounts set up for Xtramath and IXL. Student usernames and passwords will be written in their agenda. This can be done anywhere including car, waiting in line, outdoors or any place! This is such a huge piece in helping students feel confident in the classroom and more successful in math!
    • Reading -
      • Read for 20 minutes, and fill out the Reading Log. You will need a total of 80 minutes each week.
