The month of February is flying by. It is hard to believe that next week we will have our February break (Feb. 16-20.) Currently, we are getting a bit low on supplies. Please check and see that your student has enough pencils, a glue stick, and a pair of scissors each day. Thanks so much for your help.
If your child is participating in our Valentine’s Day exchange, please see the list of 21 names that was sent home last week.
Finally, we are very excited to see the boys and girls S.T.E.M. presentations which will be held in our classroom from 9:30-10:15 this Friday. Come join us!
Here is what we plan on covering in our class this week-
Math My Math students will work on multiplying fractions this week. (This includes multiplying fractions in word problems.) We will have a quiz by week’s end.
Language Arts I am enjoying reading your student’s expert informational reports. This week we will work on writing a summary after reading a given passage. We will also review how to find the main idea of a text. And, we will look at the difference between main idea and theme. Lesson 8 Wordly Wise test is this Thursday, Feb. 14th.
Science We have been studying the water cycle. All students should have vocabulary in their Science journals along with a labeled illustration of a water cycle. Students should study this material for a quiz on the Water Cycle this Tuesday, Feb. 12th.
I hope you all have a great week and a restful winter break.
