Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had a great break and are well rested.
First things first, we have a big week ahead of us since our class will be featured in this Friday’s assembly. The kids have been working hard to write up their own scripts to show off what we have been learning in class, and are excited to get up on stage and tell you all about it! Please make sure that everyone arrives on time Friday morning since we will probably go to the SPAH as soon as the kids come in at 7:50 so we can get ready.
In reading this week we will continue working on fluency, specifically looking at how authors use interesting and creative words to make stories more interesting.
In writing we will continue to work on writing opinion letters. We will also cycle back to comparing and contrasting as we will be starting some small research projects to compare and contrast children’s lives, schools, and transportation from the past and how they are now in the present.
In math we will continue with our data collection and graphing, and also cycle back to some addition and subtraction skill practice.
In our unit of inquiry, students are working on developing their own research questions to learn more about children’s lives, schools, and transportation in the past. Using resources provided in class, they are going to search out their answers, and compare these facts from the past with facts of how things have changed in the present. This will help prepare them for their final assignment in our unit that they will be working on next week.
That should cover things for this week, please don’t forget to mark it down on your calendars to come to the assembly this Friday at 8:15.
Thanks as always,
