On this page you will find information about what your child has learned about in Math and Science, as well as what I am planning on teaching the following week. The following week's plans are always subject to change due to teachable moments, weather, or campus activities.

The "Lessons we've learned" section below will show what lessons you can review with your child.  The "Lessons to be covered" section can give you an idea of lessons you can preview with your child to help boost their confidence in class. 

This Week 4/30 - 5/04.

This week we continued Chapter 12 on 2 Dimensional Geometry.  This chapter will also include equal shares to the 1/2 and 1/4.  We also began to learn about Money in calendar.  For Money students need to learn what each coin is called, how much it is worth, and how many of each type make a dollar. Please try to review Money at home too.
