Homework for the Week of April 16-20

We have decided as a class that we want to save paper and thus contribute positively to preserving our environment ; therefore the homework instructions  won’t be distributed in hard copy anymore  but can be read from this blog from now on.

 LITERACY – Spelling and Word Study/Typing
1. This week you are getting a new list of spelling words to practice. Practice all the words from 1-20 of them by writing the words on the list with your neatest handwriting! Then practice them by writing in two different colors and alternating the colors in every letter so that every second letter is the different color. Of course, do first LOOK-COVER-SAY-WRITE before you write them in your homework book.
2. Practice typing the words on computer. If you want to print it out, you can glue it in your homework book.
 LITERACY – Reading
1. While reading this week, make some story notes. Notice the setting, pay attention to characters and focus on the problem the story is built around.
2. Make detailed notes on the most interesting parts of the story, maybe some special things in it (i.e. special language) and then think what is the overall message the story has (theme). What is the author trying to tell you?

MATH Practice Fractions:
1. Finding the least Common Denominator.
2. Using number lines to find equivalent fractions.
