What Is Up In The Classroom


In this unit, students are applying problem solving strategies and learning problem solving skills. Their work involves multiplication, division, adding and subtracting within story problems.


We've been learning about deepening our comprehension through the Reading Comprehension Thinking Stems. See the poster below!


We've been working on persuasive essays. Students have selected their thesis and have been working diligently on providing evidence for their claim. We have introductions, transitions and conclusions to learn about next week. We will also start to put it all together by beginning their drafts.


Next week we will begin our sort groups again. Please assist your child at home with their words.

Monday they are expected to sort and write their words.

Tuesday is blind sort with a parent or adult. Please sign their slip for them to return to school.

Wednesday they are expected to sort and glue their words into their notebook.

Thursday/Friday they will do their word test.
