Mrs. Cormack's Class Newsletter
For the Week of May 13th-17th
Week in Review: May 6th-10th
What We Will Be Learning About This Week....
Social Studies: This week will be a continuation of our Economics Unit. Students will learn the differences between producers and consumers, and identify how science and technology have changed communication, transportation, and recreation.
Reading: Animal Research projects are still underway! Students are locating facts and details in nonfiction animal texts, then paraphrasing their learning to write an All About Animal Book. For those who finish early next week, they will be invited to make another All About Book for me to keep in my library to show future students!
Writing: In addition to working on the Animal Books, students will continue to practice writing mechanics, such as capitalization, punctuation, and abbreviations. We will also start to organize our Writing Portfolios for the end of the year.
Word Study: The last word sort for the year will be contractions. The students will spend the week sorting the cards, doing Word Hunts in their read to self books, and finally speed sort and gluing on the 17th. Some students will continue to practice plurals as not all passed the plurals quiz we had on the 10th.
Attention: Library Books are DUE!!!

Silent Auction Winner
They LOVED the Mr. Roger's videos about how things are made. None of them had heard of Mr. Rogers! (or so they said)
Students work with polygons and skip count to find the total number of sides.

No more library, but we can still reminisce!
