In math this week, we discussed decimal numbers and practiced rounding numbers. The kids have really improved reading decimal numbers, and just in time for our test Friday. This was also our first week to complete 4 sessions of Xtramath.org at home. I got very few emails and phone calls, so I hope that means we have 100% participation. Please let me know if there are issues.
Week 5, we begin operations. Adding and subtracting whole numbers.
In science we did a lot of reading about matter. Our main focus was identifying the physical properties of matter. We discussed mass, volume, density and using your 5 senses to observe and measure properties.
Week 5, we will investigate matter with several hands on activities.
Hope your weekend was as relaxing as mine was. Enjoy this week. Look for updates on parent teacher conferences in next week's update.
