A Peek At Our Week

May 16-20

Reading

HW journals are due this week on your child's assigned day. This will be the final week of homework for this year.

In Reading students are finishing book clubs. They are also working on projects which they are allowed to bring in their devices to work on. Some students will be working on creating a Book Trailer for the book they read in their book club. Others will be creating a cereal box project, poster project, or flip-book project.

Writing/Language Arts

This week we begin a Biography unit in writing. We will be researching a famous/influential American from the 20th-21st Century. Every student will choose a figure to research (I will approve the person they choose). They will be writing a speech from the figure's point of view and sharing the speech with the class. More information will be sent home later this week. They are allowed to bring in an electronic device all week for research purposes.

Spelling

This is our final week of Spelling for the year. Students will complete three word work activities in class and will take their final test on Friday, May 20th.

Social Studies

Our Social Studies time will be spent researching and writing the speech for the influential person they will be studying.
