Reading: This week we will focus on asking and answering questions about a fiction text. We will use the sentence starters “Who?”, “What?”, “Where?”, “When?”, and “Why?”.
Writing: We will talk about what makes a narrative writing piece (using “I”, actions, feelings, temporal words like first, next, then, and last). We will start brainstorming and writing a first draft for a narrative writing piece.
Spelling: This week’s spelling pattern focus is on long a digraphs. Our words are train, stay, eight, sprain, tray, freight, complain, obey, and raisin.
Math: We will begin working on strategies for addition.
Social Studies: We will finish our regions and rivers of Georgia unit with a regions test on Tuesday and the map labeling test on Wednesday. We will then begin learning about the Creek and Cherokee.
Homework will come home today and will be due Friday.
We will go to the STEM Lab on Wednesday. Students can wear a Frey shirt or a STEM shirt.
