ACADEMICS (Oct. 5-9)


This week we are reading, "Max Malone", a story in which two boys figure out a way to earn money. In the end, by helping a sick friend, they learn what their money is really worth. Skills include: problem/solution, using an index, story elements, and compound words. The test for this story will be on Tuesday, Oct. 13th.


We have moved on from place value to comparing numbers using the greater and less than signs, and listing numbers in order from least to greatest, and greatest to least.


After learning about the 4 types of sentences (statement, question, command, exclamation), we are now studying subjects and predicates.


Our study of maps continues. We are now learning about map keys and their symbols. Students will be creating their own town map with a partner.
