Reading/ Language Arts

This week, our story is Ellen Ochoa, Astronaut.

We will be learning about compound subjects and predicates in language arts this week!

Locating information and using prior knowledge are our focus skills of the week. We will also continue working on dictionary skills and alphabetical order.

Plurals with -s and -es are our phonics skill this week.

Our vocabulary words this week are: persevere, confidence, talented, apply, research, invention, hinder, disappointed, ambitious, and attain. We will have a test over these words on Friday, so help your student study them at home!

New spelling words are in the students' take home folders. They will have some opportunities to practice them at school before the test on Friday, but again, please help them to study at home as well. :)

Keep on reading at home and filling out the reading log in the take home folder! 20 minutes per night is our goal.


This week, we will be practicing counting money!

We will also be beginning Math-A-Minute this week. Math-A-Minute is a program used to help students master their basic addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division facts. Once a student masters a level, they move on to the next level. It is vitally important that students have a full mastery of their basic facts so we will be practicing a lot!

Science/ Social Studies

Last week, we began talking about pushes and pulls in Science. In Social Studies, we discussed the Oklahoma state bird, the Scissor-Tailed Flycatcher.

This week, we will continue discussing forces and some symbols of the State of Oklahoma.
