Reading

 

This past week the students read about different economic topics in reading groups including supply and demand. The whole class lessons focused on a book called One Hen. The family in the book got a loan from the village and were able to make a better life for themselves. Next week we will be learning about character traits and starting to read some Greek Myths.

 

Writing

 

This past week the students used the characters they developed to plan and write a realistic story. The students are learning to include a lot of sensory details and tell the story bit by bit. Next week we will improve on the stories by adding a good beginning, a good ending, lots of details, and dialog.

 

Math

 

In math, the students took an assessment on multiplication. Thursday we learned about the measurement of length using centimeters. Friday the students learned about mass and weight. They used a platform scale and a pan balance to find how many beans are in one ounce, one pound, one gram, and one kilogram. Next week we will wrap up Unit 1 by looking at liquid measurement. Then we will begin unit 2 about multi-digit multiplication and division. Look at the Bridges Family Letter for more information.

 

Social Studies

 

During social studies, we continued our study about economics. The students are now planning a class business. Next week we will try to narrow down the details like what to sell, how to sell it, how much to charge, etc… On Friday the students will have a test on Economic vocabulary and concepts. The study guide will be sent home and in Google Classroom. 

 

Reminders/Other
