For the Week of April 29th-May 3rd
Week in Review
What We Will Be Learning This Week 4/29-5/3
Science/Social Studies: Hopefully, your little astronomers have been telling you all about the objects we see in the sky! Monday and Tuesday will be for wrapping up this last unit of science. Monday, we will explore why the sun appears to change position in the sky. Tuesday will be a short, fun assessment over the objectives in the unit. Then we are done with science and onto Social Studies for the remainder of the year. On Wednesday, the students will be introduced to Economics via a power point. On Thursday, students will explore wants versus needs and how people get what they want and need. On Friday, we will take a look at goods and services and think about how work provides an income to purchase goods and services.
Language Arts: We will wrap up our unit on contractions and move into apostrophes that show ownership.
Reading: We are continuing our unit of nonfiction. This week, the students will read a variety of animal nonfiction books and as a class we will create an animal research project. The class will fill out parts of a graphic organizer daily, looking for specific facts and details about that animal. Students will also use an Animal Menu during their Read to Self time while I begin assessing reading levels for the end of year records.
