Mrs. Mulder's Weekly News
Parent Teacher Conferences
PTO Thank you!!
What's happening this week?
Spelling-- A new list will be coming home today. Students will be practicing FINAL consonant blends this week. Test will be on Friday.
Vocabulary--We will be having a vocabulary test this Friday, September 19th. The format will be the same as last test. There will be matching on the top but instead of 3 I will be challenging them to 5 sentences that SHOW the meaning of the vocabulary word.
Math-- We will continue Topic 2 this week. The Topic 2 test will be next Tuesday. Students will use their place value knowledge to help them add and subtract numbers using several different methods.
Science/ Reading-- We are starting our natural disaster research project! Last Friday, the students formed an opinion about the worst natural disaster and from those opinions I have created small groups to work in. The students will brainstorm driving questions for their project, research their disaster, take notes, and create a final project to present next week.
I will continue to meet with small reading groups this week as we continue to read about weather and work on main idea.
Grammar-- The class will be continuing to review nouns (common, proper, plural, and possessive), pronouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs.
