    SPELLING

    No new words this week

                  

    ********************************** 

    JOURNAL & HANDWRITING

    1. Journal:  Daily, students will write at least five complete and interesting sentences to a given prompt.  They will be graded on their focus, organization, support, and conventions.
    2. Handwriting:  Once we have finished learning all cursive letters, students will practice through spelling and select classroom assignments.  FYI:  Their trace-and-copy cursive papers are highlighted based on how they are forming their letters.  The following are some of the reasons their words may get highlighted:  for going above or below the lines; not retracing over their lines, but instead forming a loop where there shouldn’t be one; not dotting i’s or crossing t’s; picking up the pencil and making stray marks that make the letters look “hairy”; not slanting their letters properly, etc.  They have been told to look at my example and trace it before writing their own. They may retrace my example as many times as needed in order to get the right feel of the letter(s).

    MATH

    Chapter 2: Multiply by 1-Digit Numbers

    The students will practice a variety of ways to multiply numbers. They aren't expected to master all of them--but they must master partial products.

    • multiply using mental math
    • problem solving/mutlistep multiplication problems
    • multiply 2-digit numbers with regrouping
    • multiply 3-digit and 4-digit numbers with regrouping
    • solve multistep problems using equations
    • estimate products
    • multiply using the Distributive Property
    • multiply using expanded form
    • multiply using partial products
    • multiplication comparisons
    • comparison problems
    • multiply tens, hundreds, and thousands
