Room W17 Happenings

This week in class:


Math: We finished chapter 1 on place value and began chapter 2 on ordering and comparing numbers. We will be taking the chapter 2 test on Wednesday, August, 28th.


Reading Groups: We began reading groups this week! Reading instruction is differentiated throughout the entire grade level. Students switch classes for reading instruction according to their reading needs and strengths. Students may switch groups as their needs and strengths change. If you have any questions about this process, please email me.


Writing: We completed our first drafts in writer's workshop and began the revising and editing process. This week we focused on revising for interesting words/descriptive language, good opening sentences, and eye catching titles. Next week we will edit for spelling and punctuation, and at the end of the week, we will publish our writing and share our writing during author's chair.


Science: This week in science we learned about surface tension. Ask your student if adding soap or salt to plain water effects surface tension!
