Ms. Reed's Super Students
Mar. 14th- 18th
- Good Friday-is our Bad Weather Make-Up day! No school next Friday! (March 25th)
- STAAR Testing- On STAAR testing days, no visitors are allowed on campus. So no lunch visitors or anything :( The two days this month are the 249h and 30th.
- Reading Out Loud-Reading should happen every single night. Please don't think your student needs to sit in their room with a closed door reading in their head. Students should be read to often at this age! Try taking turns reading pages or reading two short books, one they read to you, and then you read the other to them. This will help with their fluency, intonation and high frequency word knowledge!
- Author's Fair- THIS FRIDAY! Please bring a juice box for your child. We will begin at 12:45 or so. :) They have worked so hard and are loving this project!
Math Example of the week!
Picture Walk Through the Week
This week we learned alot!
Math- This week we have continued to work with division and multiplication by continuing to step away from using models and learning to use representations for story problems.
Reading- In reading we have been learning how to identify the main idea. The biggest struggle we have encountered is learning the difference between the topic and the main idea.
Writing- We have been revising/editing and publishing our research projects and will share them tomorrow! Hopefully the weather cooperates and we can share outside. Please bring a drink for your child!
Science- We have been learning about basic needs of living things!
Social Studies- We will be learning about voting and identifying character traits that make for good qualities in a public official.
In reading students will practice strategies to help them remember important facts found in nonfiction text.
Our writers will be writing steps in a procedure to help a reader clearly understand their thoughts.
In math the boys and girls will learn to tell time to the minute on an analog clock. They will differentiate between a.m. and p.m. times as well.
The science lessons will help students to identify factors in the environment, including temperature and precipitation, that affect growth and behavior such as migration, hibernation, and dormancy of living things.
In our social studies lesson students will learn about the different geographic regions found in the US.
