This four day-week let us dive back into the wonderful world of division in math class! Students needed a review of this concept. They recalled how to divide numbers into equal groups and understanding the relationship between division, multiplication, and subtraction. As Thursday and Friday approached, students were begging for a challenge! Students wanted to focus on 7s, 8s, 9s math facts as they are “harder” math facts to remember and master. Students were engaged in the division problems as they participated in 1 step & 2 step word problems. Their names even made an appearance in some of them of the word problems! In phonics, students studied the suffix /less/. Students read, spelled, and wrote with this new affix. In the reading realm, we started a class novel: Frindle. We have read chapters 1-8 this week and will wrap up the book next week! Ask your kiddo what the word Frindle means! Thank you families for your support with this new class novel! Students have been writing with a frindle in their new essay: “What I Want to be When I Grow Up.” They have taken to essay writing with ease and they have definitely been enjoying/dreaming what their adult life is going to look like. (They can wait, right!?) Students will be bringing their essays home with a contest entry form. Please review their writing and submit for a chance to win $$!

Have a nice weekend!
