Salmon Week 21 Update

February 8th - 12th


Reading: We are moving away from the basel for a few weeks and all students will be reading a novel. The theme of our novels will be Owls. What a great opportunity to read good literature and in its entirety. Students will be assigned chapters to read for the week, questions and vocabulary based on those chapters and small activities that correlate to the weeks reading skill. For spelling we will be reviewing words from the first half of the year.

Writing: What is the best pet? Well ask your child. We have written persuasive papers on what they think is the best pet. Don't be surprised if you are talked into getting one.

Science: We love Force and Motion!! Students are using iPads, videos and this coming week hands-on centers to learn all we can about simple machines.
