During December students are continuing their State Reports. We have used State Research Books, The Internet, and IPADS. We have practiced notetaking strategies and transforming these notes into written pieces.
Unit 5 in Everyday Math is on fractions and decimals. Students will learn how to add, subtract, and multiply fractions. They will also learn how to convert decimals to fractions and fractions to percents. .
This month we are doing many experiments in science. We are learning all about sound. We will complete experiments to illustrate how sound waves travel through vibrations. We will learn important words such as, transmit, reflect, and absorb. You child will also be tested on all of the parts of the ear at the end of this unit.
