Week of August 13th

*Sorry this is late this week! I thought it posted, but it did not!

I hope everyone has settled back into the routine of being back in school. Our students are doing an amazing job understanding our classroom expectations and working hard to have the best learning environment possible. I am so proud of this group.

This week we will be continuing our unit of study into understanding our central idea of Roles, individuals, and events influence change. We will be spending time looking at various change makers, but particularly George Washington and King George III. We will begin discussing the idea behind rights and how these ideas lead to the American Revolution. We will spend time in reading, focusing on close reading strategies and locating main ideas and details in an informational text. We will use these strategies to find out more about changes we have seen in history. In writing, we are focusing on developing our own informational pieces. In math, we are continuing to grow our understanding of place value concepts. Specifically understanding standard, word, and expanded form for numbers up to the millions place (and billions for some!), as well as looking at comparing and ordering these larger numbers.

A huge thank you to the Konigsmark and Anderson families for your contributions to our classroom!! We greatly appreciate it!! If you are interested in helping out our classroom flexible seating and other project needs, please take a look at our classroom wishlist! http://a.co/42AVeYz
