Weekly News

Reading - The class reviewed text features in nonfiction reading.  We also learned to decompose a nonfiction paragraph and look for sentences that show the main idea, details, and more information on details.  We color coated paragraphs with highlighters and were able to see how paragraphs have patterns in how they are written.  We ended the week learning how authors often use chronological order to write biographies.  We're going to interview each other next Wednesday and write timelines about out lives.  Your child will come home with some questions they'll need answered for the timeline.

                                    

Word work/Spelling - We are on week one of our words.

 

Writing - This week we practiced writing using the style of compare and contrast.  We also worked on the structure of informational paragraphs.  Next week, the students will begin taking notes for their 5 paragraph informational reports they'll be writing.  The final report will be typed on their Chromebooks with pictures.

 

Math - We continued to decompose numbers to make multiplying and dividing easier.  We also had lessons on using parentheses correctly in number sentences.

 

Science - This week we continued to learn some key vocabulary words for our unit on astronomy.  We also learned about some ancient models of our solar system.  Did you know that the ancient Greeks thought we had a dome over us and the stars were holes in the dome letting fire come through?  We had a lot of fun learning about long long ago ideas of our world.  The class switched seats and named their new groups.  They all "discovered" new solar systems and named them.  We have Twixy Way, The Neon Galaxy, Metallic Mountain, The Piggy Galaxy, and The Planets of Moonlight Burgers.

 

Enjoy your 3 day weekend!
