What's Happening This Week?
· Writer's Workshop: We will continue to practice writing constructed responses.
· Reader's Workshop: Students have taken their research on pandas and condensed it down into a 30 second presentation that includes the most important facts and the answer to the question "How will we save panda habitats?" or "How will we help the panda population go up?". This week students will record their presentation using Chatterpix and share their video with the class. I will try to condense student projects into one Youtube video to share in a future Smore. Wish me luck!
Word Study: There will be no spelling list this week. Students will be doing a variety of word games to expand their vocabulary.
· Math Workshop: We continue our unit on multiplication this week. Students will be practicing their multiplication facts. We will also work on solving a variety of multistep word problems.
· Social Studies: Students will finish researching their assigned tribes. Then in their groups they will be creating a diorama and a poster to teach the class about their tribe. I will provide craft sticks, glue, pipe cleaner, and construction paper. I will ask the groups to bring in a shoe box and any other materials that they already have at home that they would like to use.
