What have we been up to in Room 203??
Math: We are wrapping up our fractions unit! Students have learned what a fraction is, how to find equivalent fractions, and how to turn fractions into decimals. We have been working hard on comparing fractions, mixed numbers, improper fractions, and decimals, as this is a concept that involves a lot of brain power and use of math strategies! Please practice at home! Our Fractions Test will be on Tuesday, December 20 and Wednesday, December 21.
Social Studies: Students have started working on applying the 5 Themes of Geography to the Midwest Region of the United States. Our Midwest States and Capitals Quiz is Wednesday, December 21. Please practice states and capitals as well as locations of the states at home! Students will also be allowed some time to work on their scrapbooks in class. Ask your child about these fun and creative projects!
Science: We are finishing up our unit on light. We have learned that light travels in straight lines, but that it can be reflected, refracted, absorbed or transmitted. We have explored different objects in order to classify them as transparent, translucent or opaque. Our Light Test will be Friday, Decmeber 16! Thank you for reviewing these concepts at home!
Writing: Students have been hard at work in class creating a comparison and contrast project about the holidays we have been talking about. Students were allowed to pick two of the holidays we discussed and researched, and had to come up with a creative way to show what they know about those holidays, as well as show what they have in common and how they are different. Ask your child about this project! We have all been very engaged in our work!
Reading: Students have spent the last couple of weeks reading about and discussing the holidays of Eid, Christmas, Hanukkah, Diwali and Kwanzaa. We have had great class discussions comparing and contrasting all of these holidays. Students are currently researching more about the traditions and foods that are associated with these holidays in order to create a compare and contrast project. We have been learning a lot about our own traditions, as well as the traditions of others!
