Weekly Update- February 2, 2018

Week at a Glance

Reading- Several reading skills were incorporated into our writing unit this week. Some of those were: cause & effect, compare/contrast, using/creating a table of contents, and main idea.

Math- We are finishing up unit 4 this week and next. The next few weeks will have a heavy focus on fractions & measurement. On Monday, I plan on sending home some optional worksheets for this unit just like I did for unit 3, so be on the lookout for those in your child's red folder.

Science/Social Studies- We will begin circuits on Monday for science and will also begin a biography unit, which will tie into reading.

Writing- We are continuing our informational unit and students are loving being teachers. This week they learned how to set up the structure of their chapters and began drafting as well.

MAP/OST Reports

MAP & OST reports will be coming home on Friday, February 9th. These will be in your child's red folder. Please contact me with any questions or concerns you might have.

Genius Hour Presentations

We will plan on having our Genius Hour Presentations on Thursday, February 22nd, after school from 4:00-5:30 pm. A permission slip will go home soon that indicates your child can stay after school for these presentations.

**If your child has a prior commitment after school, there will be an opportunity for them to present Friday morning instead.**
