Science - what tools do we use to predict the weather. We will be making some weather tools this week and there are a few items that the students need to gather.
* empty soda or water bottles to make thermometers.
Spelling - this week we will be doing a vocabulary and spelling test over words that would go with Thanksgiving. Students will have a vocabulary menu to fill out to help them learn the meanings of the words but will also have some activities to help them practice the spelling of the words.
Reading - Using context clues to infer the meanings of unknown words and we will be introducing QAR. The students will be reading a piece about traveling on the Mayflower and what it was really like. We will be doing a close reading with this piece and the students will be answering different types of questions and deciphering vocabulary words that are unfamiliar to them.
