A Peek at The Week
Reading: This week we are going to be reading the book, Homes Across America. This book teaches us about different kinds of homes & locations (apartment, condo, suburb, etc). It also teaches about the resources used to make these houses (natural resources, concrete, etc). While we read this informational book, we will study text features & how to locate those text features (glossary, table of contents, bold words, etc).
Math: We will have a test today (Monday) on bar graphs, line plots & 2 step story problems. The rest of the week we will begin to learn about shapes and how to partition circles and rectangles into 2, 3, or 4 equal parts. We will learn vocabulary such as, halves, thirds, half of, a third of, etc.
Writing: This week we will continue poetry and choosing powerful words that make the audience understand more. We will also learn about complete sentence, specifically that a sentence is a COMPLETE thought.
