# Q1W6 9/17-9/20

Math Activities: Students will practice estimating and using models to add in centers and seatwork assignments.

Math Learning Targets: Students will be able to use mental math, estimate using rounding skills and add three-digit numbers.

IXL: P.5, 6, 7 and C.6

Ways to help:

• Ask your child to skip count by tens or hundreds starting on a number like 28.
• Ask your child what the anchor numbers would be for a specific number. For example, rounding the number 43 to the nearest ten, the anchor numbers would be 40 and 50. Rounding 345 to the nearest ten the anchor numbers would be 340 and 350. Rounding 267 to the nearest hundred, the anchor numbers would be 200 and 300.
• Ask your child questions about place value such as “how much is 14 tens plus 30 ones?” Or “How many ones is 23 tens?”

Science Learning Targets:  Students will recognize that the sun appears large and bright because it is the closest star to Earth. Stars can be different. Some are smaller, larger or brighter than others.

Science Learning Activities: Students will make observations of a model of the night sky. We will do a variety of activities on the Earth and stars.
