Welcome to Miss Beecher’s Class. 2016-2017 will be a great year!
What Are We Learning About?!?
Math: We have started our Data Analysis unit. The students have been hard at work finding the mean, median, mode, and range of a data set. They will also spend time analyzing information on multiple types of graphs. PLEASE be sure your child continues to practice multiplication and division at home.
Social Studies: We have started our Southeast Region! The students will be learning the states and capitals of the Southeast, as well as how the Southeast pertains to the 5 Themes of Geography. Please make sure your child is practicing the states and capitals for the quiz on November 16.
Science: We have been learning all about Sound. The students have learned the parts of a sound wave and are beginning to understand how sound travels.
Writing: We are writing Turkey Stories that use dialogue! Students will be writing short stories about a great turkey escape!
Reading: Students have been hard at work in class by learning how to navigate through fiction and nonfiction texts! We have touched on finding the main idea and supporting details of a nonfiction passage, and now we are beginning to learn how to sequence and summarize the events of a fiction story. Please remember to have your child read for 20-30 minutes each night.
