LITERACY: Focus Skill- Summary
This was our second practicing our summarizing skills. We practiced picking a summary that was just the right size (not too long, not too short), and composing our own summaries for nonfiction texts. We also learned about suffixes and how they change the meaning of a word.

MATH: We officially started Chapter 6 which explored breaking about 3 digit addends, and how to regroup in the ones and tens place.

SCIENCE: . Unit 6, we started to learn about the Earth’s resources. Any questions about our quarterly at home project see link below.

Social Studies: We will have our Chapter 2 social studies test Tuesday Jan. 30th. Look for the chapter review to go home today Friday the 26th.

SEL: We talked about how to identify our own feeling, and sometimes how we feel physically can be affected by our emotions. For example if you feel nervous your tummy might hurt. Telling a grown-up about your feelings can help you feel better.
