Spelling: No spelling this week!


Reading: We will be focusing on sequence this week using informational texts about the Colonies. The students will continue to read their own individualized selections for their Genre Bingo Card--we have started over for the new 9 weeks. Wordly Wise this week, with the quiz being on Friday! Don't forget that a Reading Check-In on eCLASS is due every Friday under Second Nine Weeks.


Writing: Due to District Assessments this week, we will not be having a mentor sentence. We will complete our informational writing about our chosen part of the Solar System.

From Mrs. Turner


  • Math: FRACTIONS ARE FUN! Or at least after division the kids think so! This is an easier unit but will go fast. I will continue to post video helpers to our website and eClass. The test is December 17.

Colonial Day

  • Colonial Day will be December 18th! We dress up for this, so I've included some pictures of some dressed up in the past. . . Please know there are many ways to dress up and don't all require spending money. HOWEVER, if you plan to purchase your child's costume, you may want to watch the Halloween sales to get the costumes inexpensively.

Don't Forget!
