March 31- April 8 – Spring Break!
WHAT ARE WE LEARNING THIS WEEK?
WRITING – We are continuing writing poetry. The students were able to wear their new poetry glasses to be able to see through a “poet’s eyes”. The students are doing a fantastic job! This week we will focus on picking a big idea or feeling and then find a small moment that signifies that big idea.
OG / LANGUAGE ARTS – We will be working on “reptile” words. The first syllable in these words are closed (rep) and the second syllable is a magic e syllable (tile)
*Please continue to review the trick words your child has still not mastered for Quarter 1 and Quarter 2. Students are expected to read and write these words by the end of the year. The trick word list is in your child’s BEE folder.*
READING – Students will continue series book clubs. They are doing an in depth study about the main characters in their books and share with their reading partners.
MATH – It’s time for geometry! We have reviewed 2D shapes (circle, triangle, trapezoid, square, rectangle, parallelogram, pentagon & hexagon) and their attributes (# of vertices, # of angles, and # of sides). We will begin looking at 3D shapes, focusing on the cube. We have also learned how to partition shapes by cutting them up equally. The students are starting to put a fraction name with how shapes are partitioned.
UNIT STUDY – We have been studying and taking notes on our Georgia hero, Jimmy Carter!
