Units of Study
We are going to begin the year with the unit: Off to New Adventures. In this unit, students will be reading about different communities around the world and how students in those communities access reading and learning. Students will be introduced to CLOSE reading, learning to read a text closely multiple times to further enhance comprehension. Students will begin to develop their abilities to support their answers with evidence from a text.
Students are now beginning to work on multiplication. The big push in this unit is to help students understand what multiplication is. This means we will be focusing on the modeling of multiplication using equal groups, repeated addition, tape diagrams and arrays. Although it is great if the students want to work on memorization at home, that is not the focus of this unit.
