In ELA, we started working on identifying the main idea. We started off small by identifying the main idea that is explicitly stated in one paragraph, and worked our way up to identifying the main idea of a lengthy article. Finding the main idea is not easy. Please go to the ELA page to see the main idea resources I have up. We have also worked on sentence structures by first identifying a subject and predicate in simple sentences and are now working on compound and complex sentences. Making sure you use various sentence structures in your writing is an important piece of having sentence fluency in your piece.
In Math we are tackling fractions! We have worked on identifying common denominators, comparing, ordering, reducing/simplifying, and adding and subtracting fractions. We are currently working on adding and subtracting mixed numbers. There will be a test next week!
For now, I hope everyone remains safe and warm with the impending blizzard on its way!
