We also had a jinigle with actions for latitude and longitude. You can see if your kids remember if you'd like. I took a video of them doing it, but I can't figure out how to get it from my phone to this site!

Reading

The story of Rip Van Winkle will be our focus this week. We will be doing some comprehsion activities, written responses, as well as discussions.

Grammar

We began learning about adverbs on Fri which we need to revisit. Adverbs answer the questions how, when, where. For example: Kites flew very high overhead. Kites - subject noun; flew - verb; flew where? overhead - adverb; how high? very - adv; flew where? overhead - adv. We will also be doing some reviews and may even get to the first grammar test on being able to identify/classify subject nouns, verbs, and adverbs.

We are currently assessing the kids' on their current math understandings. Before we collect all the data, we will remain in our homeroom for math. We will be doing more fact fluency practice, write word problems and solve, graph data from surveys, and complete an escape room challenge.

We started learning about map skills such as latitude and longitude. Using that knowledge, we will be learning about time zones and reading physical maps. We will review and then have a test on Thurs. Here's the link for study help: https://quizlet.com/_3mtaz6
