Mrs. Pratt's Reading Riches!
We are continuing STATIONS this week and will wrap them up by this Friday!
Make sure you talk with your families about how many books have been read since the first day of school! I am really trying to instill a community of WILD readers and inspire your kids to want to fall in love with the worlds that are available to them through text in a book. The reading requirement this year is 40 books! THEY CAN do this! I guarantee that can do this and even go further than this! Help me encourage your children at home!
We are practicing MAKING CONNECTIONS while we read. Please help us by talking to your kiddo about what they are reading and helping them to make connections through each of the following types:
Our Week in Math with Mrs. Robinson
Next week we will be starting our work on fractions. Please keep practicing multiplication and division skills outside of school to keep your student sharp!
Mrs. Crane's Week in Writing!
We are going to focus on how to write "Broad Yet Distinct" main ideas and how to come up with relevant details for each main idea. We hope to begin writing a class expository in a couple of weeks!
Revising and editing homework will begin coming home this week. Students need to use their strategies we have worked through in class. Remind them to write "blurbs" for each paragraph, underline the sentence the question is asking about, and eliminate incorrect answer choices.
We will not begin a new spelling unit until next week!!
What in the World is Happening in Social Studies!?
WE HAVE SOME CLASSROOM NEEDS!
Not all of our students have Earbuds! WE NEED earbuds donated for our students who did not bring these with their supplies!
NEWSPAPERS AND MAGAZINES
We do a lot of activities that we cut out of magazines and newspapers! PLEASE help my donating your old magazines and newspapers!
We do not have enough scissors and as of right now we are having to use the ones we have as community supplies! If you can donate a pair of scissors, that would be AMAZING!
