In Math, we have been working on arrays and factors. In addition, we took a pretest on their mastery of the adding, subtracting and multiplication facts. Based on student performance we have some interventions that are needed for many students. I believe that over the summer, many of the students have become rusty and we just need to practice...practice...practice...
In Writing, we have been practicing writing perfect sentences. We are learning the parts of speech (nouns, verbs, prepositional phrases, adverbs and adjectives.) They received a mini-lesson on how to use the thesaurus.
Have a great weekend.
