“OLL's challenging and hands-on science program more than prepared my daughter for the rigor of high school science.”

Teacher's Comments

Dear Parents,

Last week in Eureka Math Module 4--Multiplication and Area, we interpreted area models to form rectangular arrays, found the area of a rectangle through multiplication of the side lengths, and analyzed different rectangles and reasoned about their area.  This week, we will demonstrate the possible whole number side lengths of rectangles with areas of 24, 36, 48, or 72 square units using the associative property.  We will solve word problems involving area and find areas by decomposing into rectangles or completing composite figures to form rectangles.  Then, we will apply knowledge of area to determine areas in a given floor plan.

April is Poetry Month!  During our Writer's Workshop lessons, we have been reading and writing poetry.  Last week, the writers wrote  a List Poem.  This week, we will work on a Cinquain and Haiku.  Be sure to ask your poets about their work.

Mrs. Marshall
