Friday (Reader’s Theater) –
HW for Reading Each night this week - Read (free choice or research text) for 15 minutes and answer journal prompt question.
Reading: We are still focused on overcoming learning challenges near and far. Please keep an eye out this week for home resources and more information via email. This is a great unit to investigate schools around the world. There are resources online (articles and videos) that tell students about different schools and how students to get to schools all over the world. We’ve talked about many different students and their learning challenges and how they get to school, ask them about it!
Writing: This week we are focusing on paragraph writing. To help connect this at home, have students choose one journal prompt question (emailed out previously and attached to the weekly update two weeks ago) and each night have them work to write a bit more for a different question each night. Writing stamina takes time :)
Math: We will wrap up the rounding unit this week. Students will not receive a study guide for this test but they should know the following: how to round to the nearest 10 and 100, identify place value up to the thousands place, and add and subtract up to 1,000. On Thursday, we will start our unit on quadrilaterals. The quadrilaterals unit is a difficult one for many students, take a look at the resources on the parent tab to see what you might be able to check in with them at home. The quadrilaterals unit will last until around the time of our track out.
Social Studies: We are finishing up our government unit this week. Students will finish up by completing a voting activity. We used a small book for part of the instruction that will come home this week, this is a great study tool along with the study guide. The study guide will be completed in class together with the teacher but it is the students responsibility to take it home and use it to study.
