Math- Subtraction with regrouping. We are learning the standard algorithm that we all used growing up so help your children with confidence. The only difference is that we no longer say borrow. We always talk about regrouping the numbers. Some students are trying to subtract the bottom number from the top to remind them we are using a little rhyme More on the floor~Go next door.
Math Practice- We are working on fluency with addition and subtraction facts. websites: math magician, abcya.com
Writing- We are continuing to work on our opinion pieces. Question for conversation: What strong opinion are you writing about in your paper? What are your reasons for your opinion?
Reading- Character Analysis. Questions for conversations: Who is one of the characters in the book? How could you describe their feelings? How do their feelings affect the story? You could replace the word feelings with actions, sayings, or thoughts as the week progresses.
