Happy New Year! We had an awesome day today! The students learned a new Morning Meeting musical activity and worked hard towards a class reward for outstanding behavior!

This week, we are:

Spelling: Reading and writing r-controlled words with -ar and -or patterns. The lists are in student agendas. This list will be assessed next Friday.

Reading: asking and answering questions in fiction stories. We are applying this skill with our new IB Unit as well.

Writing: producing, expanding, and rearranging simple and complex sentences. We are reviewing this skill in prior to our next writing unit! Students added great details to sentences today in our introductory activity.

Math: reviewing previous skills such as addition and subtraction and place value. We will also move into adding four 2-digit numbers. Students are encouraged to bring home their math notebooks anytime to review skills learned in class.

IB Unit: Our central idea is, “Strong leaders affect change”. We are beginning our unit by studying Martin Luther King, Jr!
