Our current unit will focus on measurement. We will learn about customary units of measure. We will finish up learning about metric units of measure and take our test midweek. Next we will look at measuring capacity in cups, pints, quarts, and gallons. We use the X-tra Math computer program to help us practice our basic math facts. We work once a week on the Accelerated Math program. Each child works at his/her own level and at his/her own pace in this program. We use the Math Facts in a Flash computer program to work on memorizing/speed of our addition and subtraction facts.
This week we will go back to Social Studies to cover a unit on cultures and traditions. We have a consumable Science book with our new Science series this year.
Chapter 4- Celebrating Our Traditions
Lesson 1- Culture Is Our Way of Life
Lesson 2- Cultures in Our Country
Each week we will follow the A, B, C, D, schedule for special classes.
A- P. E.
We will have A, B, C, D, then repeat. It would be a good idea to keep a pair of tennis shoes in your child's locker so that he/she will be prepared on P.E. days.
