A Peek Into Our Week: October 12th-16th
Math- We will be wrapping up the last few lessons in our place value unit this week. New concepts will include: breaking apart addition problems, subtracting larger numbers, and problem solving with addition and subtraction. A study guide will be sent home on Friday as I anticipate anticipate taking our unit test the following week. If you have ANY questions or concerns about concepts taught in this unit please email me this week so I can send home extra practice or resources.
Writing- This week we will be putting the finishing touches on our personal narratives. Majority of students finished typing last week and we also began revising/editing our stories using the Chromebooks. We will spend the beginning of the week printing hard copies of our stories and conducting peer editing conferences. Wednesday we will have a publication celebration which allows students to share all of their hard work. We will wrap up our week by completing a "post on-demand". This is a district requirement that serves as a writing assessment to conclude each unit. The goal is to see that students are applying all of the narrative writing strategies that have been taught and modeled throughout the last four weeks.
Spelling- Your child will receive their first set of spelling words and homework this week. As we mentioned at curriculum night, we focus on our spelling patterns for two weeks. Our first test will be on Friday, October 23rd.
