Mathematics: Measurement

  •  How can we calculate perimeter, area, volume and surface area of both regular and irregular objects?
  •  How do we convert between standard units of measurement? 
  • How can problems be solved using perimeter, area, volume, angles, measurement and visualizing 3-D and 2-D shapes

Language Arts: Reader and responses, book reports, paragraph writing and guided reading

  •  Develop strategies for writing both narrative and informational text
  •  Develop an understanding of how to develop language to enhance writing
  •  Develop competency with sentence structure and figurative language to enhance writing
