What Are We Up To In Room 221?


Poetry continues this week. Students will discover idioms and their meaning. They will work on partner poems and reading from their favorite poets.

This week we will also be preparing and reviewing for the AIR testing that will happen on the 19th and 20th. We will do some reviewing of the tools used as well as the types of things they will see on the test.


Students will continue to explore poetry and the ways to be inspired by the world around them.

We will also be doing some review of persuasive/informative writing to continue to practice writing with evidence from a text and prepare for the AIR testing as well.

Spelling/Word Work

New words will be coming out on Monday, April 11th!

Tentative date for the next test is Friday, April 22 but will possibly be later if we need more study time due to AIR testing. I'll keep you posted!
