No School Monday – Labor Day Holiday!
This week we will focus on the follow:
Math– In math we will continue to work on addition and subtraction with large digit regrouping. Our math end of the unit assessment will concentrate on addition and subtraction which includes large digit regrouping. *Our addition/subtraction unit assessment is planned for Thursday, Sept. 7th.
Reading– We will continue with our novel study. The Sign of The Beaver by Elizabeth George Speare. Our reading will continue to focus on class discussion on theme, main idea, summary, character traits and vocabulary. Students are actively participating in by completing notes as we read the book aloud. There are also key vocabulary words (from Ch. 1-6) that students are learning.
Writing– We will continue with our Informational Writing Unit this week. Students will continue to research their animal from a chosen habitat of their choice. Students have a graphic organizer to help them with their research in order to produce their informational research paper. They may do some of this research at home if they wish. Notes will be taken over the next week or 2 and then we will begin writing our rough drafts. Our class goal is to have the informational paper completed prior to the September Fall Break. Additionally, students will be writing paragraphs for a grade this week using what we have learned about writing a strong paragraph.
Grammar- This week students will also learn about conjunctions. This will prepare the students when learning about compound sentences. We continue with daily grammar practice.
Social Studies- We will continue with our unit on Geography and physical features of the United States. We will continue to concentrate on skills such as maps, land forms, and latitude/longitude. We will be doing classroom activities, projects, and worksheets for grades.
