Update in schedule

I wanted to let everyone know of a change in our schedule. We have switched our RTI time (8:45-9:25) with our Writing block (12:05-12:45).

What's happening this week in Room 512!

Math-

We are beginning our unit on patterns - repeating, number, and geometric.


Please encourage studying math facts (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division) at home. If you are unsure what facts your child should be studying, please email me. I can also print out flashcards to study at home.


Writing-

We are beginning our new unit on persuasive writing.


Reading-

We are starting Unit 3 Week 3:

  • Comprehension strategy: Summarize
  • Comprehension skill: Main Idea & Details
  • Genre: Expository text
  • Vocabulary strategy: Suffixes

SRI & SMI testing

We will be taking our second SRI and SMI test this week. I will send scores as soon as all testing is completed.
