Welcome to Room 8!Math - We are finishing up our unit on geometry. We were learning about polygons and their attributes. We learned how to compare and contrast shapes using their attributes. We also learned about lines, segments, and rays. We will soon begin our unit on measurement. That unit is divided into 5 parts: time, measurement, volume, money and area/perimeter.Language Arts - In language arts are using two stories to learn "How do I use two texts to learn about a topic?" We have been reading about Mt. Everest. We have learned many interesting facts about people who climb Mount Evverest. We are learning to compare facts from two texts. We're learning to find main ideas and details from certain sections of a text.Remind us to do extramath.org! A paper will be home explaining how it works on Back-to-School night.Remind us to keep reading every day!Remind us to practice our math facts.- Look at informational papers from the school.- Look at our agenda.- Review our homework with us to see what we're learning.- Look at our completed work papers. If we have errors on the papers, please review with us. Some notations you might see on the papers are:- WH - that means "with help" and we needed an adult's help to complete it- TOG - that means we did it together as a class- WOT - that means we did it on our own, but then went over the answers together- POQ - we were to answer with "part of the question"- P - we completed it with a partner- NC - not in a complete sentence or your answer needs more support- ND - not done- I - was completed individuallyThank you for your support!!Note to the Students:READ!READ!READ!Mrs. FetterhoffSome sites you might want to keep trying throughout the summer are:www.thinkcentral.com(our language arts program).
