What is going on?
We have an assembly tomorrow- please have our kids drop off backpacks on the porch and go to the gym.
Reading: : We will be exploring the genre of poetry. We will describe how rhyme, rhythm, and repetition interact to create images in poetry.
Writing: We will learn how poets use repetition to show importance, as well as, rhyming words and rhythm to entertain. Students will use sensory language to create poetry
Spelling and Grammar:
Spelling words this week: better, dress, goes, light, mother, own, small, walk
Grammar lessons include correct capitalization in letter writing: greetings and closings.
Science: Students will learn what it is to be a geologist! We will observe, sort and describe the different properties of rocks.
Math: With a week full of addition under our belts, we will not focus on using algorithm to practice 3 digit subtraction. Students will work each day with their peers and independently to solve algorithm subtraction problems. Challenges will be available for students who are consistently solving problems correctly.
