Week of November 16th-20th
Please continue to check your child's planner every day. Your child is expected to write down the daily assignments. At the end of the day, I check each student's planner. If your child did not turn in an assignment that day, a note will have been written at the bottom.
Wednesday, November 18th is our PTA restaurant fundraiser at Chipotle from 5 PM-9 PM. 50% of the proceeds will be donated to our PTA. A flyer is coming home today. I hope to see you there!
We will resume social studies at the beginning of December.
This week we will begin tackling fractions. We will discuss halves, fractions of a foot, and fractions using egg cartons. Students will take a pre-test, which will allow me to see what they already know about fractions and division.
We are continuing our novel study of Fish in a Tree. This week, we will be reading and discussing chapters 19-30. We will be working on making:
Please save all worksheets from the novel study. These will be great study tools for the test at the end of our novel.
We are beginning a unit on verbs. This week we will cover:
- action verbs
- verb tenses
- subject-verb agreement
Spelling: Ambiguous Vowels au, aw, al
Students will be tested over all 10 Core Words. Then, I will choose 10 of the Test Words to give them on Friday. For the last word, students have to write the sentence that I say using the spelling word. I take a writing score for their sentence based on spelling, capitalization, and punctuation.
***It is very important that students spend some time each night practicing their spelling words.***
