One month left!!

Hard to believe, but there is only one month left of the school year.  The weather feels like June already, and it feels strange on those days when you can't wear your shorts and sandals.

We have moved on to one of the funnest math units of the year - probability.  We are working on using appropriate terms to express probabilities, as well as fractions.  Here are a few sites to help you practice at home:

Toads and Vines - this site is based on the game Snakes and Ladders.  The language is a little dense, so you will probably need to sit with your child to help them read the questions.

Bamzooki - a fun game, it asks students to express probabilities in fractions, decimals, and percents.  This is one for the probability experts!!

Ball Picking Machine - this one focuses on probability basics, so it is a good starter.

In literacy, we have finished our poetry portfolios.  Now, we are working on our movie poster media projects, as well as writing a story about characters who demonstrate resiliency.  

Have a good night!
