Weekly News

Reading -  The class finished the reading content unit on government.  This week focused on using various types of illustrations to help understand what we read.  We even looked at a United States document giving woman the right to vote.  The students were amazed at how much we learned by reviewing the document!  On Friday, we started our new unit on poetry.  The students read a bunch of poetry and made lists of what they noticed about poems.  We discovered that many poems tell stories or express feelings.

                                    

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

 

Writing - Science and writing were combined this week.  After listening to a myth about weather, the students wrote their own weather myths.  They were very creative and help explain things like why there are rainbows and why we have clouds.

 

Math - This week the students took 4 PARCC tests involving math.  We also had a lesson on how fractions must be equal parts of a whole.

 

Science - We have started the unit on weather.  This week we focused on some of the vocabulary they will be introduced to as we go on with the unit.  They matched words with definitions and drew pictures to help understand the vocabulary.

 

 

Have a wonderful weekend!
