Hello students and parents!
We had a fun, but short week last week! We celebrated Honduran Independence Day, finished our “scripts” for the short video clips, and learned even more about character traits! Here are our plans for this week!
In Guided Reading this week we will be creating short tableauxes from the first chapter of Charlotte’s Web and considering the explicit actions and speech of the characters to make inferences about their character and how they interact with other characters.
In Writing class we will be writing short acrostic poems about one of the character we have read so far in our character traits unit. Students will choose from either the BFG, Fern, or Anna and make a poem. During the week we will review each other’s work and use a thesaurus to improve our word choice.
Our Word Wall Words for this week will be pack, play, drill, fill, and check. We will learn about the prefixes re-, pre-, and mis- as well, and add -ed and -ing endings to these words.
This week in Math class we will be learning about the Concrete, Pictorial, and Abstract forms of representation to show our work when solving problems. We will also begin to study multiplication and related strategies such as skip counting and adding on.
This week in Science class we will continue to learn about clouds and the weather. We will be creating models of cloud types and learning how to identify these types of clouds and when a storm is coming. We will also be creating Paper Slide Videos to show our understanding of this topic. Please allow your child to bring in their electronic device this week.
This week’s homework will include individual reading and math assignments in ReadWorks and IXL. The entire class will also have Language Arts IXL. In order to assure that each student is completing their work and that they are communicating these assignments with their parents we ask that you please sign your child’s Learning Log once they have completed their homework for the week.
