ELA: We will be doing a lot of research between now and winter break. You will need to work on your "Explorer Research" project over the next couple of weeks. The project will be assigned later this week - I want to go over more of the information before they begin working. So keep an eye out for that in Google Classroom (Wednesday night).
Spelling: We will be working on spelling patterns in class, with a spelling test Friday. The spelling pattern for this week is Plural endings: Adding -es.
These will include words like:
benches, guesses, splashes, mixes, voices, kisses, leashes, watches, horses, brushes, scratches, churches, peaches, sketches, changes, places, foxes, speeches, clothes, crashes, classes, ditches, branches, and ashes.
When the students test, it might include some similar words (ones with the same pattern spelling pattern).
This week we will be working on multiplication - 3 digit x 1 digit. This will look different then how it has been taught in the past. I sent home a Math Newsletter today that goes over the different ways we will be working through these problems. I know it seems different, but it will really help them understand the concept of multiplication - and we will work toward the standard algorithm. :) I have included videos that you can watch to help with each lesson if you are interested.
Monday: Module 3 Lesson 7
Tuesday: Module 3 Lesson 8
Thursday: Module 3 Lesson 9
Friday: Module 3 Lesson 10
Let me know if you have any questions! Have a great week.
