We are in the middle of our units in Math, Reading, and Writing. In math we continue to work on adding and subtracting three-digit numbers up to 1,000 using base ten models and open number lines. We will wrap up this unit with a review of telling time to the nearest five minutes as well as using language such at "ten minutes to eleven" and "twenty minutes after two". Keep on practicing fact fluency, telling time, and counting money at home.
Our reading and writing units are closely connected since they are both non-fiction units. The students are working in non-fiction book clubs to research topics, and then using their new found knowledge to write information books filled with headings, side bars, caption, expert words, glossaries, and more. We will wrap up these units with the students picking individual topics to research and write about.
