Mrs. Baker's Class

Feb. 15,2013

We are working on

Math: The students will work on a variety of skills this week. We will focus on fractions, money, and addition/subtraction. Students will be completing problem solving each day in math. Problem solving is connected to everyday experiences where they communicate, and use logical reasoning to justify their thinking in the most efficient way.

Science: The focus in science will be weather and seasons. Students will be learning about seasons. Students will incorporate what they've learned about seasons and weather while they practice being a meteorologist. We will be working closely with Ms. Freeman in front of the green screen to put our weather person skills to good use.

Reading: The big idea in reading will be literal and non-literal meanings (idioms). Students will be using literal and non-literal meanings of words/phrases to make inferences. Using mentor texts students will be creating mental images and inferences. They will be applying this skill into their writing and poetry.

Writing: We will continue to stretch out our small moments in narrative writing. We will also be writing our weather reports.
