What's Happening in Mrs. Muegge's Class

READING

  • We are loving our small reading groups. Ask your child what book they are reading in their small group.
  • Students will continue to learn about strategies when reading independently.
  • We will continue to discover different types of conflicts characters can face.
  • Students are currently working on a cumulative project to showcase their understanding of character conflict.
  • We will continue our daily 5 activities where we will read, write, and do word work.

Math

  • We will continue to practice our multiplication and division strategies.
  • Please continue to work on fact fluency by practicing math facts via XtraMath or flashcards
  • We are almost done with Topic 1 & 5 Multiplication and Division.
  • Look for information coming home soon on an assessment over these topics

WRITING

  • We will continue to review what a strong lead in a story looks like, adding details to a story, and making sure to have a beginning, middle, and end.
  • Students are in the midst of writing "Ouch stories"
  • While reviewing the skills of writing a small moment story the students will be learning to write to a prompt.

Science

We have discussed what a scientist looks like and we agreed we ALL fit the description! So many wondering minds in our class! We are taking seeds through the scientific process and will keep a journal. We also have many hands on labs we will be learning from.
