3 Plus Math- Tue. May 26th, we'll take our Geometry unit test and Wed. May 27, we'll begin our last unit- Unit 5-Measurement. Students will work with standard and metric measurement units.
The common core standards the students will practice are:
  • Know relative sizes of measurement units within one system of units.
  • Express measurements in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit.
  • Use the four operations to solve word problems involving problems that require expressing measurements given in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit.
  • Use formulas to solve perimeter and area problems.

Reading- We are wrapping up the year with some fun poetry. The students are learning many of the elements of poetry along with different styles/types of poetry. They are trying their hand and writing some of their own to bring home and share.

Social Studies- With Ms. Redebaugh:
In Social Studies, we are continuing Chapter 5: “Michigan Grows Up.” The unit explores the economic growth of Michigan. Over the next two weeks, we will be learning about MI in the Civil War, the Underground Railroad in MI, Michigan-made products, and Henry Ford.

Science- We've learned a bit about the presence and absence of heat to change states of matter and will continue a bit more. Our science studies has been somewhat interrupted with schedule changes due to the weeks of M-STEP testing.

Writing- Tying in with our social studies learning, we are reading and discussing about a public issue that affects our state of Michigan. The children are learning about the pros and cons behind the public issue of putting in off-shore wind farms in the Great Lakes. Ask your child to tell you a bit about using alternative wind energy created by wind turbines.
