NO SPELLING TEST OR PACKET THIS WEEK
We will work on becoming more fluent while reading. We will also work on comprehension skills before, during, and after reading.
We will begin a new fictional writing unit. This week we will work on creating a character with a beginning, middle, and end. We will work on using exciting words to bring the story to life and they students will use a checklist to see what they can add.
We will begin a new geometry unit. The students will identify plane shapes, make an organized list, identify properties of plane shapes, build with shapes, and make new shapes from shapes.
We will discuss fair tests and go through the steps of the scientific process. We will complete several experiments this week using peeps. If you volunteered to send items, please send them in on Monday the 23rd.
