In unit 1 of our Lucy Calkins studies, we will look at Interpreting Characters & The Arc of Story UnitsThe Description of the units are as follows:
Reading: This first unit helps launch students to become students who want to read with deeper engagement and attention to studying the characters through structures, routines, habits of richly literate reading workshop to grow significantly using text-based ideas about characters (interpretations)
Writing: A writing unit that will teach students how to craft, edit, revise and publish realistic fiction narratives.
Vocabulary Studies, we will study from Wordly Wise workbooks. Students will study one lesson every two weeks. We usually will study these words in class on Mondays and Wednesdays. After two weeks of studying, there will be a test on Thursdays on spelling and multiple meanings of the 15 words given. I advise students study over the two week, do not procrastinate. We will work on the workbook in class. If students do not complete the section during class, they need to finish it at home. Quizlet is one way to help with their studies.

Chapter 3 Whole Number Multiplication and Division
In this chapter, your child will study multiplication and division of whole numbers. Some of the skills your child will practice are: • multiplying and dividing with regrouping • estimating products and quotients • solving real-world problems
Estimating products and quotients is an important mental math skill. You can carry out many activities around the house to help your child practice this skill. For example, show your child some grocery bills for your family for the current month. • Have your child estimate the grocery bill for different hypothetical scenarios. For example, what would the grocery bill be for a family with twice as many members as your own? What would be the amount spent on groceries if the prices of all items were doubled?
Vocabulary to practice:
A product is the answer to a multiplication problem. 12 is the product of 6 and 2.
A quotient is the answer to a division problem. When 100 is divided by 2, the quotient is 50.
A remainder is the number left over when a number cannot be divided evenly. 11 ÷ 5 = 2 R 1 When 11 is divided by 5, the remainder is 1.
To estimate 576 × 12, you can round 576 → 600 round 12 → 10 The estimate is 600 × 10 = 6,000.
