In Math, we have started our next unit on the multiplication of whole numbers and decimals.  Students will be working on becoming proficient using the standard multiplication algorithm, and using area models to solve.  They will also be applying their skills in problem solving activities. 


In Reading, we are starting our novels, and all are novels written by Avi this time.   Students were allowed to choose from the following titles: Seer of Shadows, Something Upstairs, or Midnight Magic.  Students will be reading in groups and looking at literary elements such as setting, characterization, plot, conflict, point of view, and theme.

In reading, we will also be completing word study packets. The packet for Lesson 6 will be due on Wednesday, November 26th. Some time will be given in class to work on this, but students should be working on this at home as well.  Some parts of the packet need signatures from parents/caregivers.
