Throughout this week we have been reviewing symmetry, congruent and similar shapes, and decomposing and composing shapes. We also reviewed strategies for solving division and multiplication problems during math.
In reading, we have been working on story mapping. Students listened to the story The Garden of Abdul Gasazi and identified the characters, setting, problem, events, and solution. Please encourage your child to think about the story elements as he or she reads alone or with someone.
In social studies, students have been researching an inventor of their choice. They used an online database and their social studies books to find information and began putting a poster together about their person on Friday.
Friday was the end of the quarter.
There is no school Monday, January, 16, 2012.
Thank you for all that you do!
