Classroom Update

October 22nd - 26th

 

Reading: We have wrapped up unit one in reading.  In unit two we will be reading informational texts, specifically opinion pieces.  Students should be reading 20 minutes a day at home.

 

Writing: Our second narrative piece has been finished.  To go along with reading, we will be working on opinion writing.  We are continuing to develop our writing conventions, learning how to construct simple, compound, and complex sentences.

 

Math: Unit two in math is flying by. We should be taking our test sometime next week.  Students have been doing a great job adding and subtracting decimals.

 

S.S./Sci. We are finishing a stretch of social studies.  Chapter four and five test will be tomorrow. We have been studying why Europeans came to the New World and learning about different explorers.  I am hoping to get one more Science investigation in before the end of the trimester.
