We're Growing Great Leaders!

Week of October 28-31

Thank you to everyone who made our field trip a wonderful day for the students! :)


Our Week at a Glance

Hat Day!

Our class earned 30 tickets so we will get to celebrate with Hat Day this week! We will do this on Thursday!

Reading

With this being a short week, I want to spend our time reviewing concepts that the students could use some review in, instead of introducing new ideas.


Guided Reading
  • text and graphic features
  • synonyms & antonyms
  • syllables


Reader's Workshop

  • How Can I Be a Good Reading Partner?
  • Retelling Strategies


Word Study

  • -th digraph
  • adding endings to base words
  • recognizing CVC patterns (consonant, vowel, consonant) in words

Math

  • subtracting with missing addends
  • comparing groups in word problems
  • fact families

Science

  • forces - push and pull
  • relational terms - above, below, beside, etc.

Writing

Word Choice
  • Zippy Verbs
  • picking 'just right' words
  • creating meaning
  • Mentor text - If You're a Monster and You Know It by Rebecca & Ed Emberly


Sight Words

These are words that I feel students need review with. Some Halloween words are also added to help us as we read Halloween books this week.

  • where
  • was
  • find
  • what
  • their
  • pumpkin
  • ghost
  • Halloween


Spelling Words

Most of these words are repeated from last week. The majority of students did not show mastery on the spelling test last week, so we will be reviewing again.
