Math – We completed Chapter 3: Subtraction. We will review the concepts on Tuesday and have our chapter test on Wednesday. Students will be tested on the following concepts: subtract mentally, estimate differences, subtract 3-digit and 4-digit numbers, and subtract across zeros.
ELA – This past week we read a story about astronaut, Ellen Ochoa. We also applied our understanding of character traits in a fun new writing project.
Content – We finished our Map Skills Unit. Next up is Matter!
Spelling – We took our Lesson 5 test on Friday. The Lesson 6 list was sent home.
Last week we also had our very first Binkley Bucks Store. Students can earn Binkley Bucks in a variety of ways: good behavior, winning games, being our “Mystery Walker”, etc. Once a month, students get a chance to spend their BB on coupons, candy, pencils, and other little goodies. In addition to earning BB, students also earn jewels for their clips during the Binkley Bucks Store. Needless to say, this is something that we look forward to all month long!
