Language Arts: I hope you have a chance to look at the Spelling City site. You will see your child's marks as well as words they have missed. We are working on common and proper nouns, captilization and inferring details from stories.
Math: We continue to work on basic facts. Addition facts and times tables need to be memorized and accessed easily. This has a huge impact on studying all other kinds of math. Try visiting http://www.ixl.com . You can practice on this site free for 15 minutes per day. Good old fashioned flashcards work too.
We are also studying place value and math games.
Science: The kids were thrilled with the lab last we. We are looking at the surface tension of water and how it can be disturbed by adding a surfactant (dishsoap). This is the platform for helping the kids learn scientific inquiry and how to write a lab.
Socials: We are finishing up our mapping unit and will have a test this week. The kids need to know the 7 continents, 4 oceans, lines of latitude and longitude, the equator and scale. Hope you have fun with the bedroom mapping activity. It's due on Mon. Oct. 21.
THERE WILL BE A SOCIALS TEST ON MAPPING ON FRIDAY, OCT. 18.
