A Peek At Our Week

March 21-24


*There is NO reading homework due this week or next week due to STAAR testing.*

STAAR Review

This is our final review week for STAAR. We will focus on test-taking strategies and test talk questions. Students will work in small groups and with reading partners to practice applying strategies to STAAR-like passages.

Writing/Language Arts


This week in writing, our focus will be on writing our poems for our class book. The books are set to publish on April 11, so I am guessing they will be ready by early May.

Revising and Editing

The skill covered this week will be Spelling Consonant Changes.


This week students will complete three word work activities in class. The spelling test will be this Thursday, March 24th. There will not be new spelling words assigned next week.

Social Studies

This week students will be participating in a technology project. They will be creating a presentation covering important events and people from the Civil War. They are allowed to bring in a device Monday and Tuesday for research time.
