The month of May signals the beginning of final assessments, collecting and recording data, setting up conferences, and counting down to the end of the final school bell. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support this year. Together, we accomplished so much!
This final unit in the year provides students the chance to pull together many of the skills and strategies that they have learned. During this unit, students will explore a variety of genres, including folktales and fairy tales. Students will explore a variety of genres, including folktales and fairy tales.
Students will write informative/ explanatory texts in which they introduce a topic, use facts and definitions to develop points, and provide a concluding statement or section. Students will use various topics such a butterfly life cycle.
Research to Build and Present Knowledge
We will focus on the following math objectives:
- Partition circles and rectangles into two, three, or four equal shares, describe the shares using the words halves, thirds, half of, a third of, etc., and describe the whole as two halves, three thirds, four fourths. Recognize that equal shares of identical wholes need not have the same shape.
- Measure the length of an object by selecting and using appropriate tools such as rulers, yardsticks, meter sticks, and measuring tapes.
- Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve word problems involving lengths that are given in the same units, e.g., by using drawings (such as drawings of rulers) and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem
- Represent whole numbers as lengths from 0 on a number line diagram with equally spaced points corresponding to the numbers 0, 1, 2, ..., and represent whole-number sums and differences within 100 on a number line diagram.
Social Studies (Geography and Environmental Literacy)
We will continue our study of geographic representations, terms, and technology to process information from a spatial perspective. They will also understand the effects of humans interacting with their environment.
Science (Life Cycles of the Butterflies)
We will complete our study the butterfly life cycle.
