This coming week will be full of learning and thinking!
In math we are beginning to learn the concept of rounding and being able to explain the WHY and HOW we know our answer is correct. We will also begin learning various addition and subtraction strategies. Our math workshop centers should be starting as well!
In writing workshop, we will be taking one of our stories from their writing notebooks and taking it through the entire writing process. I am excited to watch their stories transform!
Reading workshop will begin a focus on character traits and emotions. Students will be expected to explain their thinking with textual evidence.
Word study will be focusing on long a patterns in words
Finally, in science we are beginning our study of rocks, minerals, and soils. There will be a visitor on Friday to teach about soil.
Please remember to send in picture orders, as picture day is the 15th! Also, if you haven't checked out our party volunteer sign up, it is on the home page of this website!
