Here’s a brief overview of the upcoming week.
NWEA testing continues Tuesday and Thursday with the Math section. Please make every effort to have your child here and properly rested and fed to take this test.
Math– Measurement- we are learning to use appropriate measurement tools for the task such as ruler, yardstick, or measuring tape. We are also learning to measure to the nearest inch and to make estimates. We will be learning equivalent units inches-feet, feet-yards, inches -yards. We are doing a lot of measuring at school. Next week will be using the metric system.
Reading – We are practicing QAR’s (Question-Answer Relationships) to answer questions about a text. We have practiced In the Book – Right There, and Think and Search, and In Your Head. Basically they’re strategies to help decide if an answer is in the book (answer can be found in text) or in my head (based on what I already know).
Spelling – ore/oar chunks.
Science– Plants and Plant Parts. We have made a foldable labeling the parts and the purposes of each part. Are seeds we planted last week are really taking off!
Social Studies– Continuing with How People Work and Live in the Community. We will be learning about goods and services and how businesses help the community.
Writing- We have just finished writing a nonfiction article on a landform. We will be starting to write an opinion piece.
Please continue to check your student’s planner and green folder daily. Students should be reading at least 20 minutes a night. I send home books everyday! Also students should be doing a spelling activity every night as homework.
Thank you for your continued support!
Enjoy the beautiful weather!
