Math: Classes will be working on solving multi step word problems using all operations. Following this topic, students will be focusing on fractions. Classes will discuss what a fraction is, how to determine the size of a fraction, and compare fractions to other numbers. It is very important that students continue to practice their multiplication facts at home, as these topics will become more difficult without fact mastery.
Language Arts: Classes are reading a text focused on extreme places to live. Students have been searching for the main idea and comparing communities within the text. Classes have also been working on writing explanatory pieces this quarter.
Girls on the Run is a new program set up for the girls at GES. This is a wonderful program to build self-esteem and also physical fitness. A flier was sent home previously, but there has been some confusion when it comes to pricing. Please note that there are options for financial assistance that is based on a sliding scale on the website. We would like to see as many girls as possible join us in this amazing program, and wanted all families to know that there are financial options!
