Mrs. Dawdy's Class

Week of October 19-21

Hello Parents!

Please read the sections below to see what's going on in the life of our class!

Working with Words

There will be no Working with Words lessons or test this week. The students will practice all of the Word Wall Words we have learned so far. Every day we will do a new fun and engaging practice activity.

Reading

Students will continue reading John Chapman, a story about Johnny Appleseed. The students will read a different biography about Johnny Appleseed. While reading this, they will focus on different text features. They will also provide evidence for author’s points in a text.

Math

The stars will continue working with place value this week. The students will compare numbers with <, >, or =. They will also model adding 1 more, 10 more, and 100 more in each lesson. Then, they will review for their test.

Writing

The stars will continue working on opinion pieces. They will discuss text features in their opinion pieces, as well as providing reasons. The students will share some of their work this week.
