Weekly Focus
Math:
 Recognize that each place value position is: o 10 times greater that the value to its right o 1 10 of the value of the position to its left
 Read and write whole numbers through hundred million.
 Use a basic fact and a pattern to multiply mentally by multiples of 10,100, and 1,000.
 Fluently multiply multidigit whole numbers: o fivedigit by onedigit o threedigit by twodigit o fourdigit by twodigit o fivedigit by twodigit
 Use equation, rectangular arrays, and area models to illustrate quotients.
 Write and evaluate repeated factors in exponent form.
 Find whole number quotients of whole numbers using: o strategies based on place value o properties of operations o relationship between multiplication and division.
 Simplify numerical expressions applying order of operation rules (multiply or divide from left to right & add or subtract from left to right).
 Write numerical expressions.
 Evaluate numerical expressions without evaluating them.
 Including expressions that may require multiplication up to 1 fraction with a denominator of 10 or less.
 Interpret numerical expressions without evaluating them.
 Evaluate numerical expressions considering Associate, Commutative, or Distributive Properties, when applicable.
Science:

 Use Science Process skills.
 Use five senses to observe qualitative properties of matter.
 Use tools to measure quantitative properties of matter in metric units.
 Compare and contrast the basic properties of solids, liquids, and gases, such as shape, particle movement, volume, mass, color, texture, and temperature.
 Plan and carry out investigations to classify objects based on their observable properties.
 Keep records that describe observations made, carefully distinguishing actual observations from ideas, inferences, and opinions about the observations.
 Communicate these findings.
 Identify and/or explain that science is grounded in verifiable observations that are testable.
 Investigate the concept of weight versus mass of an object. Discuss why mass (not weight) is used to compare properties of solids, liquids and gases
S.S.
 Label and identify United States and Capitals.
 Use latitude and longitude to identify places.
