Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! Please check for weekly updates!
Week of September 11-15
I hope you and your family enjoyed this beautiful weekend! Here is what is going on in class this week.
Reading - We are working on creating a picture in our mind while we read. Also, we are thinking of questions we have as we stop and think about the text we are reading. Toward the end of the week we will work on making predictions. These strategies help with comprehension.
Writing - We will begin to brainstorm small moments for our personal narrative paper.
Math - We are working on addition and subtraction strategies. Last week we focused on the part-part whole strategy. Our tests are mainly word problems where students have to picture what is going on in the word problem to solve it. We will practice this a lot this week! We will also review the key-words that signify addition or subtraction! We will not have a test this week, and I will keep you posted when one is coming up.
Science - Science safety and physical properties
Social Studies - Being a good citizen
