Reading & Writing

We will continue working in Unit 1-Memiors. We will begin writing our rough drafts in class and then revise our writing looking at word choice. In language, we will explore subjects, predicates, and combining sentences.

It's Reader's Theater week!! Reader's Theater is a dramatic presentation of a written work in a script form. Students read from a "script" and reading parts are divided among the readers. It's a great way to increase students' reading fluency and the kids love it! We will take the Unit 2 Assessment and review it in class-this is not for a grade. We will walk through the questions and analyze the types of questions on this test. We will also wrap up our novel study.



We will begin spelling the week of September 26th.

Social Studies

We are going to finish our Native American scrapbooks this week. If you have any scrap-booking materials such as small letters, beads, feathers, stickers, or stamps that you would like to send in for students to use, that would be great!


We will begin Unit 2: Multi-digit multiplication and division.
