News from the Nest

Week of 2/1-2/5


Next week we will finish up our nonfiction unit.

Beginning on Monday, students will be responsible for completing 3 responses to their reading throughout the week at home. They will have the option to record their responses on a paper reading log that will be sent home or online. The online responses will be done using a website called The website allows them to log the books they are reading along with choosing questions to respond to their reading. I will be explaining the website to the students on Monday. This will help them with their reading responses in class.


Next week we will work on the opinion piece that we started this week. We will be going through the writing process of revising and editing in order to finish this piece of writing.


This week we learned how to name a fractional part of a set of objects. Next week we will move on to representing fractions on a number line.

Students were introduced to a new math website,, that they can use to practice assigned skills at home. There is a note about the program in their Friday Folder. IXL is also a great way to practice fractions at home. Students should focus on standards W.1-W.18.


  • Reading log due on Monday
  • Young Authors story is due on 2/11
  • Your scheduled conference time is in your child's Friday Folder.
