Curriculum Update November 18-22

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I can't believe it is almost time for Thanksgiving already! We have been lucky to have some very nice weather in December.
Please note, we will reschedule our Skype with our grade 3 class pen pals in Pakistan. Unfortunately, some conflict took place over the weekend and their schools will need to be closed for a few days. I will let you know of the new date when it is rescheduled.
On Thursday, we will be presenting our movies to many city leaders in Shawnee. The students will also share what they feel the city is doing well in and what areas of improvement needed. You are welcome to attend. It will be at 2:00 pm.
ELA/Science: We will continue our force and interactions unit. The overall guiding question will be, How do you know forces are acting on an object?" We will be conducting investigations to better understand how unbalanced and balanced forces impact motion. We will continue identifying the main idea of a text by recounting the details and explaining how they support the main idea. The students will also create and answer questions to demonstrate understanding of what they are reading.

Spelling/Vocabulary: We are continuing to focus on force, incorporating how magnetism is a force. We will not have a spelling or vocabulary test over new terms. A new list will come out on December 2.

Math: We are now exploring the meaning of division. Students will understand how division is sharing, repeated subtraction, how to find missing numbers on the multiplication table, writing division stories and how to choose an appropriate equation with problem solving.

Writing: We will continue to work on opinion writing this week in math and in science.

Have a fantastic week!
