Our schedule looks different this week because we are taking our writing assessment Monday-Wednesday. We hope that all students will finish by Wednesday and we will return to our normal schedule on Thursday. Here is what is happening this week.
ELA- We are wrapping up the last week of our current theme, "What are the places you love"? The students have learned a lot about what they like and dislike as well as what others like and dislike. This week, we are comparing and contrasting the 5 books we read during this theme and noting differences and similarities in two or more texts. Our spelling pattern for this week is "Long E and I spelled as Y" and our spelling words for this week are:
Math- We are in Topic Two of our Math Resource! We are working on Multiplying by 0,1, 2,5,9 and 10. We completed our Topic One Unit Test last week and will share those with you during Parent-Teacher Conferences
Writing- We are finishing up our final opinion writing and will be heading into Informative writing after Fall Break.
Social Studies- We just completed learning about the different types of communities and wrote an opinion paragraph on the best community to live in. After break, we will dive into learning about Our Environment.
Hope everyone has a good evening and I will see you all at Parent-Teacher Conferences next week!
