continue our work with electric circuits. We explored conductors and
insulators using a circuit tester that we constructed using batteries,
light bulbs and three wires. The children tested fifteen items to
determine whether the item was an insulator or a conductor. Ask them
math we continue our work on multiplication. We will be applying our
math knowledge to solving word problems involving area and perimeter.
Thank you for your support and cooperation with overseeing your child’s
nightly math practice. They should be using the partial products method
of multiplication. I have copied a quick review of this strategy for you
on the back of this newsletter. Please remember that if your child is
struggling with this homework, you can send me a note or email me. The
homework is meant for their independent practice and should not be a
burden for your family.
In reading we continue to focus on RI history. Students are gathering
the information they will need to write their next research paper. They
are very enthusiastic about learning about Rhode Island history!
