Take a look at what we will be focusing on in math this month.

 In Second Grade, we will explore 2- and 3-dimensional shapes and their attributes. We will partition rectangles into rows and columns of the same-size squares. We will explore strategies for determining the total number of objects in equal groups and rectangular arrays.


In Third Grade, we will revisit volume measurement and focus on comparing, estimating, and then measuring liquid volumes. We will continue to develop an understanding of fractions as numbers by exploring a new area fraction model and fractions as representations of distances on number lines.

In Fourth Grade, we explore the whole in fractions as well as adding and subtracting fractions and mixed numbers. We use these computation skills to answer questions about line plots. We will be introduced to adding tenths and hundredths and we will build on our knowledge of rays to explore unit iteration for angles.

In Fifth Grade, we will learn two methods for multiplying mixed numbers. We will use these methods to find the areas of rectangles with fractional side lengths and to solve problems involving fractional data in line plots. We will also review attributes of 2-dimensional figures and classify shapes in a hierarchy based on properties. We will graph points on coordinate grids to visualize numerical patterns and represent real-world problems.

Have a great month!
