Singapore Math In Focus

Chapter 9: Comparing Sets

Through this unit, students will be able to compare quantities. Comparing sets is the most basic form of subtraction. Combining sets will pave the foundation for simple addition. Key terms used will be fewer, more and uncountable sets.

Science

This month we will be learning about how to take care of our dental health. We will also be studying magnets. Students will investigate and understand that magnets have an effect on some materials, make some things move without touching them, and have useful applications. Students will be exposed to vocabulary words like attract, force, magnetism, north pole, pull, push, repel and south pole.

History and Geography

We have finished our unit on presidents and American symbols this week.  The students have learned a lot about four of our country’s greatest presidents.   Hopefully you have had some fun conversations with them these past few weeks.  Students have shown a lot of growth in their knowledge of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and Theodore Roosevelt as well as our national symbols.
