For the week of 9/28

Leader in Me Habit of the Week

Habit 3 - Put First Things First:

Work First,Then Play

I spend my time on things that are most important. This means I say no to things I know I should not do. I set priorities, make a schedule, and follow my plan. I am disciplined and organized.

We will be learning and discussing Habit 3 this week.

Our Learning Targets...

Reading - I can read a variety of poems. I can identify the structural elements of poetry (ex. rhyme, meter, stanzas, and line break), relate these elements to form, and use them as evidence to support their understanding of the poem.

Writing - I can write poetry in a variety of formats.

Social Studies - I can identify American Indian groups in Texas

Math – I can demonstrate understanding of multiplicative comparisons (twice as big, three times as tall etc).

Science - I can build a simple circuit. I can make connections between mechanical and electrical energy, and identify conductors and insulators.
