It's hard to believe it's nearly the end of October already. In math, we are nearly done with Unit 1 on finding volume of rectangular prisms. Students have learned that they can calculate volume by either filling a prism with unit cubes and counting them, or using the formulas Base X Height or Length X Width X Height. This week we'll be taking the unit assessment on this topic.
In writing, we learned the rules of capitalization today. Ask your child some of the reasons that they should capitalize a letter in their writing. We learned 10 rules today, and applied the rules in a short story. We are all working on personal narratives - true stories that have happened to us.
We just wrapped up an adventures block on word study.
Friday is the Halloween parade followed by a party!
