The students worked extremely hard and did very well on the unit 1 math test! Please ask your child to show you his/her results Monday night. You can find it included with all corrected work in the manila folderthat can be reviewed and kept at home. Included with the test is the challenge portion as well as the open response piece. We will be reviewing all sections tomorrow in class. The challenge and open response are scored separately, so you will notice three different scores.
We are continuing to work on (and complete) our personal narratives this week as well as creating friendly letters (and formatting them correctly). Both of these written assignments are taught in the first unit of our Wonders Program. It is hard to believe we are in the fourth week of our first unit. This week we will be focusing on non-fiction narrative texts. The skill of creating a topic sentence and organizing information from two separate texts is a very complex skill to master, and we are spending a lot of time each week working on this.
Our first science unit, energy and motion, will be introduced this week as well!
As always, don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
Mrs. Howe :)
