Language Arts

The spelling lesson this week reviews when to add the suffix /s/ and /es/ as well as how to add the suffix ing.


This week we are continuing to read non-fiction, and will be discussing the different text features and how these text features help us as a reader.


We will continue writing opinion pieces about whether or not we would have wanted to attend the First Thanksgiving. In this opinion piece, students will give reasons why they would or would not have wanted to attend the First Thanksgiving using information they gathered while doing research..

Math

This week, we will begin Chapter 4 in My Math, which is subtraction of two digit numbers, with and without regrouping. I did not return the fact tests before Thanksgiving break, so there will not be an addition fact test this Thursday. It will be postponed until next Thursday, December 10th. Fact tests will be returned tomorrow so they will know what facts to study.

Social Studies/Science
