Mrs. Badgett's Weekly Update

Week of January 18th

Ms. Denny started teaching last week. We will follow the co-teaching model in the upcoming weeks. This means we will both be teaching small groups within the classroom! I LOVE having her in the classroom as we are able to further target your child's individual needs!


Below is an overview for this week. As always, please let me know if you have any questions. Have a great week!!

Reading

This week we will be focusing on sequencing and chronological order. We will complete a BackChannel Chat over each area.


Your child will also be reading a novel, based on his/her reading level, with a small group of students. We are working on answering higher-level questions over our reading by analyzing, evaluating, and creating.


We will also be reading passages. Please reference Canvas to view the articles. There is a link to Canvas below.

Math

We are working on Unit 7 (Fractions and Their Uses; Chance and Probability). If you have any opportunities at home to talk about fractions, please expose your child to them. For example, you could discuss fractions while cooking dinner or eating a pizza. Please continue to practice multiplication AND division facts at home. Please let me know if you need any flashcards. We use the app "Multiplication Genius" in class to practice!

Writing

Each student has selected a Famous Hoosier! We will be working on our Table of Contents and will be beginning to write our essays over our Famous Hoosiers this week!!

Homework

Your child will have homework each night. The reading log is due on Friday. Also, MobyMax is a great website for your child to practice at his/her instructional level. The link is below.
