The Dog That Dug For Dinosaurs

Here is a link to this week's story. Our learning goals this week are:

I can read/write words with the /oo/ sound and spelling.

I can explain the Author's Purpose for writing.

I can tell whether information is fact or opinion and explain why.

I can locate an adverb in a sentence and describe the function of adverbs.

Vocabulary: exact, discovered, remove, growled, amazed, explained, guard, souvenirs

Spelling words: took, books, foot, hoof, cook, nook, hood, wood, stood, hook, crook, cookbook, look, good, crooked, bookcase


This week we will be ending our unit on Graphs and Data. This went quickly and was easy for the students. We will be reviewing Monday and Tuesday and there will be a test on Wednesday.


In addition to learning about dinosaurs this week, we will continue learning about caterpillars, moths, and butterflies. Hopefully the weather will cooperate and we can release the butterflies on a sunny afternoon this week.


Our class has been VERY talkative. While some talking is allowed and even encouraged -- the amount has become disruptive and a real problem. Each child has the words FIELD DAY taped to their desks. Students will have to have letters left in order to be invited and participate in field day.
