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.

We are using our math interactive journals to help reinforce the concepts that we cover each day and we meet in small groups for extra practice.  We are working on "Writing in Math" with our journals.  The children need to be able to "explain" the steps to solve a problem as well as use appropriate math terminology/vocabulary.  There will usually be a homework assignment each evening to reinforce the concept taught that day.


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.


Social Studies

Chapter 4- Celebrating Our Traditions

Lesson 1- Culture Is Our Way of Life

Lesson 2- Cultures in Our Country
Lesson 3- What We Celebrate
Lesson 4- American Stories
Lesson 5- Two Cultures

*** Our text is a consumable book.  We write responses to questions throughout the lessons in each chapter.  

Special Classes
Each week we will follow the A, B, C, D, schedule for special classes. 
A- P. E.
B- Art
C- Library
D- Music

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.
