This week, we are:

Reading: reading, decoding, and spelling words with -ge and -dge ending patterns. This word list will be assessed next Friday, October 25. Also, we are describing how words and phrases (rhyming and alliteration) give meaning and rhythm in poems, stories, and songs. This will also be assessed next Friday.

Language Arts: using apostrophes with contractions.

Writing: brainstorming topics for our How-To informational writing pieces. To begin this unit, we will practice writing “How to Brush Your Teeth” altogether as a class.

Math: adding and subtracting within 100 using base ten blocks and expanded form. We will work on this unit for a few weeks. Students can bring home their math notebooks any day as long as they bring notebooks back to school the following morning!

IB Central Idea: Living things adapt to their environment. We are exploring how the Creek and Cherokee Indians lived in Georgia long ago!
