Ms. Dollard's Class

September 19th-23rd

What's Happening In Room 214?

This week really flew by! We've learned a lot of new things.

Literacy- We talked about prefixes and suffixes. We determined their meaning by examining how they change the meaning of a root word. This is very important because many of the multisyllabic words that students will be introduced to in the 5th grade have a prefix or a suffix. We also touched on words with multiple meanings.


They will be tested on the words on Sept. 27th

Quizlet to practice:

Science (Dollard's HR)- We wrapped up our unit on cells. Students will have a test on cells Tuesday, Sept. 20th. Students completed a study guide Friday

Quizlet to practice:
