Week of October 8, 2018
Garage Sale
This Friday, we will be holding our very first Garage Sale! Super exciting and fun!
How does it work: Students bring in gently used items that they no longer love or use, but are still in working order, and sell them for Faux Dough. Students become business owners and will set up their own "stores" to sell their goods. Students keep the profits from their sales, which they can then use to buy items from other students or class coupons during Class Store.
What to sell:
Some students make their items to sell: art, origami, hair bows, etc. Most children bring in used items from home. Students can bring in one item, or 100. There will be several garage sales throughout the course of the year, so students may not want to sell everything in this first sale. Please make sure that all items that come in have been approved by YOU! There is no need to spend any money on garage sale items. That's definitely not the point. Unfortunately, students cannot sell any food items, such as baked goods, gum, or candy.

Curriculum

Language Arts.  A Great Heart.  Finishing up with The Circulatory Story  Students continue to create text for a figurative language booklet.  Writing includes paraphrasing text and explaining the use of the figurative language in the book.  

Math.  Module 3, Multi-Digit Multiplication and Division.  Lessons 6.  Students multiply two-digit multiples of 10 by two-digit multiples of 10 with the area model.  Lesson 7 - 10, use place value disks to represent two-digit by one-digit multiplication.  Finally, multiply three- and four-digit numbers by one-digit numbers applying the standard algorithm.

Social Studies.  Ranchero quiz on Thursday.

Science.  Soils, Rocks and Landforms with Mrs. Kearns.

Wednesday – Friday. Module 3:  Multi-Digit Multiplication and Division  Topic A begins with Multiplicative Comparison Word Problems. 
Lesson 1: Investigate and use the formulas for area and perimeter of rectangles. 
Lesson 2: Solve multiplicative comparison word problems by applying the area and perimeter formulas.  
Lesson 3: Demonstrate understanding of area and perimeter formulas by solving multi-step real world problems.

Language Arts.  Continuation of Wit&Wisdom, figurative and literal meaning of the word, “heart.”  Students will use graphic organizers to set the use of figurative language into place for a future essay.

Monday.  Patriot's Day.

Students will take home Mid-Module 1 Math test on Wednesday.  Please review with your child, sign and return.


Math.   Module 1, Lessons 11 – 14.  Use place value understanding to fluently add multi-digit whole numbers using the standard addition algorithm, and apply the algorithm to solve word problems using tape diagrams.  Solve multi-step word problems using the standard addition algorithm modeled with tape diagrams, and assess the reasonableness of answers using rounding.  Use place value understanding to decompose to smaller units once using the standard subtraction algorithm, and apply the algorithm to solve word problems using tape diagrams.  Use place value understanding to decompose to smaller units up to three times using the standard subtraction algorithm, and apply the algorithm to solve word problems using tape diagrams.
