Math

Practice the concepts taught so far in decimals on Khan Academy.

1.Read aloud of a book followed by the reflection sheet about the 5 elements of a story i.e. Character,setting(When and where),problem,solution and PLOT-(Beginning,middle and end).

Focus on the following things was made while reading books:

What information does the cover page of the book gives us?
