Box Tops for Education

In Math this week, we are wrapping up Chapter 10/Fractions with a test on Tuesday. Study guides went home last Thursday and again today. Next, we will move onto measurement.
In our grammar study, we will continue to identify and write compound sentences which are two sentences combined with a conjunction. Two sentences on the same topic will be connected with a conjunction such as for, an, nor, but, or, yet, so. (FAN BOYS)
In Writing, we are wrapping up our unit on how to write a Constructed Response answer. We are using our Social Studies and Science books a lot for this unit. Most of this writing will be done in the writer's notebook. Kids will practice using transitions (first, next, last), answering in complete sentences, and how to cite the text or author (according to the text, the author wrote).
Social Studies Update
I have been thrilled with the Antebellum Doll Projects and Student Presentations! Everyone did an excellent job of sharing their doll and speech bubble. Students in our class enjoyed having the opportunity to hear about each other's dolls as well as being able to ask questions of each other.
