Week of 1-27-2020
Here is what we had/will be doing this week in our class. If there are any new updates or changes to our schedule I’ll be sure to post them right away!
Important Dates/School Events:
Friday Popcorn will be on so go ahead and send in those quarters!
LA: Penguin Research Project! We read like crazy about penguins. We are reading both narrative and informational texts and comparing the difference in structural elements!
Raz-Kids: Yesterday your child will be bringing home their log in information to use our new reading website Raz-Kids at home! This website is fantastic and will give your child the ability to read from hundreds of electronic books and answer comprehension questions! We will also be adding this element to our Daily 5 lessons in school. This choice is called “Listen to Reading” and students will get to use computer skills to navigate the site as well as practice being responsible and respectful with technology! They are going to love it Please let me know if you have any questions about getting set up with the program at home. Have fun!
Math: This week your child will receive a math game but not a math packet until we finish Module 3.
Spelling: Monday 1-27 we had our first spelling test on the -an family! Friday 1-31 we will have our test on the -at family. We will work with many words in the-at family, though only six words will be on the test. Three “hot words” will be starred on the sheet sent home tomorrow (and definitely on the test) while the other words will be chosen by me. They are called the “cold words.”
-at family: bat, cat, fat, hat, mat, pat, rat, sat
Writing: Penguin Informational Writing Piece!This week we will continue revising our pieces and begin publishing the pieces for the hallway. I will help the students type what they have written in order to see publishing in a different form. Make sure to check out our bulletin board when you are in our hallway!
Social Studies: This week we will begin our new Unit “Where are We?”
