We’ve got a busy week ahead!
In reading, we have CRAFT journals due this week. We are a classroom full of readers! Last month, we read over 30 books. This month, we’ve already ready 19. This is just counting the books that we’ve taken a reading counts quiz for! That’s awesome! We have a goal of 40 books for the month – keep reading!
In language arts, we’re finishing a fun writing piece about a Polar Bear. Students have worked to critique each other’s writing. We’ve improved our introductions, worked on developing details, and are creating some of our best narrative writing pieces yet! I can’t wait to read these stories!
In math this week, we will continue to look at fractions. We will multiply fractions and add fractions this week. In addition, we will develop strategies for simplifying fractions. On Thursday bring those Ninja masks I warned you about. Mine is made from construction paper – students can do the same at home. If they need construction paper, they just need to ask – we have plenty. I will remind kids about this during the week.
In science – we will have another quick assignment of physical and chemical changes, and we will complete an investigation to collect some data.
In social studies – we’re learning about the Reconstruction period. We’re reading about this in our reading groups as well.
We’ve got a busy week ahead and we’re looking forward to a break. Look for information to come home on Monday regarding a social studies project that will be due in early December.
~Have a great week!
