A few quick things about this week...

Reading

We will be starting our final unit of LEAD 21 this week as we focus on setting goals. Reading Journals will also be assigned this week and due during the week of May 11-15th.

Writing

We will begin exploring the genre of realistic fiction this week as we begin brainstorming and studying the elements of well-written fiction stories. Students are encouraged to continue brainstorming at home in their Writer's Notebooks, and will be choosing a "storyline" by the end of the week.


Students should be writing at home 2+ times per week in their Writer's Notebooks. All "at home" entries should be dated and marked with an (H) to clearly identify an "at home" entry. Remember... the more they write, the better writers they will become!

Math

We are beginning Unit #11 - 3-D Shapes, Weight, Volume, and Capacity this week. Students should also be practicing their facts on a nightly basis on www.xtramath.org.

Science - Watery Earth

We will be finishing our observations of groundwater this week, and culminating with a quiz on Thursday.

We are... a PEANUT & TREE NUT safe classroom!
