What we have been up to....
We love biographies!! We learned that biographies are about subjects, not characters. Also, you need to ready biographies like informational text, stopping and asking yourself what you just read, asking to understand about specific vocabulary and content, noticing subject's struggles, hardships, traits that affect their decisions, and comparing their relationships with others and how it influenced their life. We will continue next week! Key vocabulary words this week were- biography, motivation, challenge, achievement, awards/honors, education, crucial time, and social issue.
We have one Canvas assignment this week and will have another assignment next week. When I assign a digital assignment, the students have two nights to complete and should be typed by them. :) Please let me know if you have any questions about this.
This week we worked on possessive nouns.
We finished our persuasive writing essay and began typing today. I am SO PROUD of their efforts with this piece of writing! You will be impressed. :)
We started Unit 2, Celebrating Cultures. Vocabulary words were sent home Friday and we will have a vocabulary quiz next Friday, February 5th.
Math and Science
STUDY FACTS!! A few minutes each night makes a big difference. Please ask your child what facts they need to study. We’ll have a Mad Minute on Monday.
We are nearing the end of unit 6. A couple of days this week I squeezed in two lessons. I really want to get through units 7 and 8 before the end of February as ISTEP is nearing closer. I’m planning on having our unit 6 math test next Friday. I will send home a study guide on Monday with the kids. Topics covered next week include symmetry, congruent shapes, polyhedrons, and 3-D shapes. We have our prefix quiz on Tuesday.
Next week I will also start putting a Canvas math problem up for the kids to solve and explain how they solved it. It’s going to be very important that the kids are able to EXPLAIN how they solved a problem on ISTEP. Canvas is a great place to start practicing.
We’ve completed our unit covering light and now will start our unit over natural resources.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions you have.
