News from Room 111

February 18, 2014

Reading

We will continue with our Olympics theme and working on compare/contrast. We will also work on summarizing. I noticed with our president reports, that this is something we need to come back to.

*There is an additional assignment to the reading log. Students now have to write a summary over one thing they read. They can just do this on the back of the paper.*

Writing

We are going to focus on creative writing and ISTEP prep this week.

Math

We will continue with Topic 12 and continue working on elapsed time. This is definitely the most challenging lesson in this topic. Our test will be FRIDAY! Please continue working on math facts each night.

Social Studies/Science

We will be reading a number of current events/non fiction pieces to help us prepare for IREAD/ISTEP.

Spelling

Our skill this week is sorting past and present verbs.
