Watch this video on decimals by Math Antics!
In Math, we are learning how to:

– round four-digit whole numbers to the nearest ten, hundred, and thousand, in problems arising from real-life situations. 
– represent, compare, and order decimal numbers to tenths, using a variety of tools.
– count forward by tenths from any decimal number expressed to one decimal place, using concrete materials and number lines.
– add and subtract two-digit numbers, using a variety of mental strategies.
solve problems involving the addition and subtraction of four-digit numbers, using student-generated algorithms and standard algorithms.
– add and subtract decimal numbers to tenths, using concrete materials (e.g., paper strips divided into tenths, base ten materials) and student-generated algorithms. 

In Language, we are learning how to:

- extend understanding of oral texts by connecting the ideas in them to their own knowledge, experience, and insights; to other texts, including print and visual texts; and to the world around them.
- demonstrate an understanding of the information and ideas in a variety of oral texts by summarizing important ideas and citing important details.
- make inferences about texts using stated and implied ideas from the texts as evidence.
- identify the point of view presented in a text, citing supporting evidence from the text, and suggest some possible alternative perspectives.
-  gather information to support ideas for writing using a variety of strategies and oral, print, and electronic sources.
- identify and order main ideas and supporting details and group them into units that could be used to develop a summary, using a variety of graphic organizers.
- use punctuation appropriately to help communicate their intended meaning, with a focus on the use of: the apostrophe to indicate possession, and quotation marks to indicate direct speech.
