This week in Math we will finish Topic 10 and take a test on Wednesday. We'll start Topic 11 on Thursday which moves into adding and subtracting fractions.
In Reading, we are still reading The One and Only Ivan. We're also going to finish up cause and effect and begin learning about Point of View with a few fun picture books and activies.
In Writing, we'll finish our literary essays. These are turning out very well. Some of them are already on the student blogs and the rest will be up soon. We will also begin a point of view writing assignment which should be a lot of fun.
In Word Study we will learn about context clues. We'll go over examples as a class, work in groups and even find examples in our individual reading and our read aloud.
Our specials for the week are:
Monday - Music Tuesday - Art Wednesday - PE Thursday - Library Friday - Music
We are still badly in need of kleenexes. Please send in a box or two. Thanks!
