I am in the process of uploading all of our saved documents for the Scott Foresman series. Included will be a spelling contract, spelling cards, task cards, leveled reader task cards, and other goodies. 🙂
I hope everyone had a wonderful Fall break. I can not believe that the 1st Nine Weeks ends on Friday. I have asked students to read for 30 minutes each evening. To verify that they have done this homework, please sign their agenda each night.
Reading — Passage to Freedom
Math — Review of 1st Nine Weeks Math concepts (Place Value, Compare & Order, Multiplication)
English — Finish up unit on Descriptive writing; Possessive nouns
Friday, October 16th — Last Day of 1st Nine Weeks
Wednesday, October 21st — Field Trip to U.S. Space and Rocket Center
Reading — We have finished Unit 1 in our reading series. We will be reviewing the comprehension skills as we prepare for our Benchmark test this Friday. To continue last week’s story, Shutting Out the Sky, we will complete a one week unit on immigration that will conclude with an immigration simulation on Friday.
Math — We will be working on Multiplying 2 digit by 2 digit numbers this week. Students need to study their multiplication facts each night to increase their fluency with this skill
English — We will be reviewing types of sentences; subjects/predicates; independent and dependent clauses; simple, compound, complex sentences; and common/proper nouns. We will also begin a new descriptive essay on our favorite desserts (Yum! Yum!)
This week we will be setting up our classroom economy. Students will earn credits for complete work, homework, class participation, among other things. They can also lose debits for not completing homework/classwork, not staying on task, among other things. Every three weeks students will able to “spend” their credits in the class store.
Progress Reports go home Tuesday, September 22nd
Fall Pictures — Friday, September 25th
