Salmon's Week 7 Update

October 12 - 16th

Overview

Reading: It was Fire Safety Week and we read Smokejumpers in class. What a great cross over. We worked on reviewing Author's Purpose this week. The students are become very good at determining inform and entertain type passages. We need to continue to work on the persuasive purpose in our reading. Please reinforce this at home when you hear words like: should, could, please, must. There are more key words, but those are a few.

Science: We will be taking a quiz over the entire skeletal system Monday, October 19th, this is the week after the long weekend.. I will be sending home a study guide early next week.

Social Studies: Students were given a study guide on Wednesday over the Southwest Past/Present Chapter 2. This quiz will be on Tuesday, October 13th. Please review the ideas with your child and make a questions to help them study. We will be playing Kahoot! on Monday as a review.

Peek at the Week Ahead:
