Day 6 PE

Ms. Locke is planning to take the kids outside on any Day 6 when the temperatures are okay to be outside.  Your child should come with snow pants, boots, coat, hat, and mittens so they can participate in the PE activity.

Homework for Week of January 22-26

Students should choose at least 2 afternoons during the week and one weekend day to do a whole session of xtramath.org with the Beat the Teacher section.  They can choose which nights they would like to go on and they can always do extra days.  It is very important for students to know their math facts.  If your child does not have access to xtramath then they can practice with flashcards or with a game if you have one that practices the facts.

Building Electrical Circuits

Last week we continued our energy unit in science and worked on building electrical circuits.  We will continue working on them this week.  Students worked with partners to find ways to light their light bulb when they were given a battery, 2 wires, and a light bulb.  We had about half of the groups figure it out last week and I am sure the rest will figure it out tomorrow.  Students had to record in their science notebooks ways that worked and ways that didn't.

This was our first group to figure out how to build a circuit.

Long Division Videos

We will be starting long division by learning the Partial Quotient method at the end of the week and into next week.  There will be a helpful chart with the division methods in your child's binder.  Remember we are trying to find the the largest multiple of the divisor to put over on the right. 



We will be working on the Tradition Method for long division after we do Partial Quotients. Click below to watch the video.  You might be able to just watch only the first part of this video to help you.
