This week the children will be reading "Roberto Clemente: Pride of the Pittsburgh Pirates". This text describes a historical social situation and uses literary devices to make the writing like a story. We will focus on the skill of Cause and Effect, and the weekly grammar concept will be plural nouns. The children will also be drafting a personal narrrative.
We will continue with multiplication through the exploration of various facts and strategies. The children will learn to multiply by numbers from 2 to 10 and will also learn about the Associative and Distributive Properties of Multiplication.
*Please have your child practice multiplication facts daily!
We will begin our next area of study, Communities. The children will learn what makes up a community by reading about communities of different sizes in different places. They will also learn how their own community is alike and different from other communities around the world.
The children will be learning about Forces and Motion. They will come to know what motion is and what forces cause motion. They will also learn how objects change position when they move; the effects that mass, friction, gravity, and magnetism have on motion; and the difference between balanced and unbalanced forces.
Although we are trying to foster independence in the children, please be sure to check your child's backpack and folder daily in order to keep abreast of his/her studies.
Please send in tissues and wipes if you are able!
Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions/concerns, and thank you for guiding your child on his/her educational journey!
