Math- This week we will finish up on Unit 5: Large Numbers and Landmarks, and begin Unit 6: Fractions and Decimal Grids. In this first week of fractions we will be focusing on finding fractional parts of a rectangle, interpreting the meaning of the numerator and denominator of a fraction, and identifying equivalent fractions and explaining why they are equivalent.

Social Studies – This week we continue our study of the Northeast Region of the United States.

Language Arts- This week we will begin a unit on poetry. Students will be learning how to identify and create different types of poetry based on structure. Students will also be incorporating what they learned about figurative language into their own poems. We will also be analyzing the poem, “Snail at Moonrise” found in this month’s StoryWorks magazine.

Have a wonderful week!
