Hello Parents!

Please read the sections below to see what's going on in the life of our class!

Working with Words

The students will be focusing on “air” (such as stair), “ain” (such as rain) and “ail” (such as nail) sounds this week. There will be a spelling test on Friday. These words will be on the test: together, small, through, air, though.

Reading

Students will finish reading about pioneers this week. They will practice describing characters and events and identifying the central message. The students will take an end of unit assessment on Thursday.

Math

The stars will review for their test this week. They will take the test on Tuesday. After that, they will use mental and manipulative strategies to add.

Writing

The students work on the Writing Process. They will plan, draft, revise, and will develop their Narratives. They will also work on describing character’s actions.
