Math: We continue to work on multiplication and division with large numbers. We have been working on long division with up to four numbers in the dividend. Next, we will be tackling two-digit by two-digit multiplication. This module will wrap up right before the winter break with an assessment on 12/18.
Reading: We will start a book study as a class on Monday. We will be working on a variety of skills including finding understanding parts of a poem, evidence in texts, identifying story elements (setting, characters & plot), and inferring.
Writing: Students are working on five-paragraph opinion essays. They have some very strong opinions!
Social Studies:We will be using cause and effect skills to help us understand the way of life of the Coastal and Plateau Native Americans. Students will be taking a test on this unit later next week.
