Mrs. Cormack's Class Newsletter
For the Week of April 22nd-26th
Week in Review
What We Will Be Learning About This Week.....
Reading: Monday through Wednesday the students will practice how to identify and distinguish the main idea from the topic of a given passage or story. On Thursday and Friday, the students will respond to nonfiction texts in their Reading Response journal using a menu. This week's plans were originally for the previous week; we did not have time to get to them due to testing.
Science: This will be our last week of science for the year :( BUT, it will be a good one :) Students will be exploring the Sun and Moon. They will observe, describe, and record how the two celestial bodies change position and appearance at different times.
Writing: This week, we will finish learning commas and move into contractions and apostrophes to show ownership.
Word Study: Students will review the word sorts they received the previous week. Students will speed sort and glue on Friday. Only one more sort to go after this one!
