Holiday Mug Exchange
Week of December 7-11
Hot Cocoa & Cookie Classroom Holiday Party
We will drink hot chocolate from our new mugs and eat cookies and/or donuts while enjoying a holiday movie and "Read In". If you are willing to send in hot cocoa mix, cookies, or donuts, please let me know. All mugs should be turned in by December 15. Please contact me if you have questions.
Reading & Writing
This week in Room 210, we will be reading the selection, The Planets in Our Solar System, written by Franklyn M. Branley. (Unit 2, Week 4) The strategy will be to generate questions and the skill is summarizing. Students will ask and answer questions about this informational text and look back at the text often to find the answers. A summary is a short statement of the most important ideas in a paragraph, passage, or selection. It includes the main ideas and the most important details. (CCSS3.RI.1-2)
The spelling words are Consonant Blends-- three letter blends such as thr, spr, scr, and str. In grammar, students will learn about singular and plural possessive nouns. They will have a Weekly Reading Assessment on Friday that will assess all the skills learned and practiced during the week.
