HEADLINE: Hurricane Irma Closes school Monday and Tuesday
Due to the school closures, IOWA testing for the 5th graders will be on Thursday, Friday, Monday and Tuesday this week and next. Please make sure your child gets plenty of rest and eats a good breakfast.
MATH: We spent the week working on rounding to 10. We build pages in our IANs and inputted our touchstone results into the iRespond.
MATH PREVIEW: Rounding is a difficult concept so we will work on it for a couple more days (rounding to 10 and then move on to rounding to 100)
Math Game Day includes tan-grams and bloxels,
getting the hang of these!
Bloxels is a great game to work on perimeter, area, addition, subtraction, multiplication and more.
WRITING: Students work on Quick Prompts (QPs) each day and put them into their journals. They have the option to share them with their classmates for glows and grows. This week we worked on character development.
WRITING PREVIEW: We will continue to work on character development by adding quotes and thoughts into our writing. We will use mentor sentences, word of the day and peer review to help us.
Reading a QP for peer review 🙂
Thursday is spelling game day.
The games we use in class are available on my symbaloo website.
SOCIAL STUDIES: We went over economics and the expectations for the Entrepreneur Day project. Please let us know if you have any questions. Mrs. Poulos and I are here to help. We also finished up our map work in our IANs.
SOCIAL STUDIES PREVIEW: We will be looking at Native American Tribes and we have Guidance on Thursday.
MAP SKILLS TEST on Friday 9/15. The completed study guide is on Mrs. Polous’ blog.
READING: We are slowly getting through all of the DRAs. The good news is that everyone is doing well. The bad news is that makes more work for them. 😉 “Grumble, Grumble’~Students
READING PREVIEW: We will try to finish DRAs and work in the Read 180 lab. We are getting close to finishing our Read Aloud: Stuart Little. We will have a comprehension quiz on that when we complete it.
Please let me know if you have any questions, comments or concerns. 🙂
