Math: We have begun the Envisions math program this week. Topic 1 focuses on going a little deeper into multiplication and division. Instead of simply learning to memorize multiplication facts, students will understand Multiplication Properties in order to recognize specific types of multiplication problems and solve them more efficiently. In division, students will understand the "Meaning of Division as it relates to real world situations.
Reading: We have begun Unit 1 which focuses on story elements. Students will be able to identify character traits, describe a setting, identify a theme of a story as well as recognize a piece of writing on how it is organized.
Writing: Students have begin the writing process. We are focusing on how to properly begin a piece of writing, depending on the type of piece you are focusing on. For example, Students will learn how to write a Fact V. Opinion piece which will begin differently from a Fictional writing piece.
