Salmon's Week 2 Update
September 7th - 11th
Overview of Week
The students have worked on map skills with latitude and longitude questions. We also began taking notes on the Southwest region (Arizona, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas). Our unit on science we have watched some "cool" and fun videos using BrainPOP explaining why classification helps us understand ideas better.
Peek at the Week
Writing: The goal is capitalizing:
1) beginning of sentences
2) pronoun "I"
3) proper nouns: names of people, places and specific things
Social Studies: We will continue to learn about the Southwest and more about the economy of the area. Plan on a study guide coming home in the next week to help focus the learning.
Science: We are learning about classification and how this helps us to understand and group animals better. This unit will then lead into a unit on the human body.
* Please check DOJO points we have had a lot of success with this in class and I can tell. If you see "red" or negative points this is due to something they "need to work on". Some examples are: talking in the hall or at an inappropriate time, missing homework, agenda not signed, behavior,etc.
* Yellow Folders - have your child remove any items in the "Leave at home". The other side "Return to School" is where you will find homework for the night.
