Academic Update


Academic Update


Reading Mini Lessons/ Partner Work:
"Readers Have Big Jobs to Do"
We will continue to learn about the strategies we can use when we get to tricky words. We will also practice fluency and comprehension while reading independently and with a partner. 


Writer's Workshop:
We started our new unit on "Review/ Opinion Writing". Over the course of the school year they have written stories, teaching books and informational books. Now they will write about their opinions and write reviews about their favorite things! They loved the activity today- put their items in a line and "judge" them, figure out the reasons why it is a favorite and write their opinion








Math:
The students enjoyed trying out some new center activities last week. I think they  really enjoyed playing Dominoes 'Mexican Train' the best! 
FYI- Your child might be asking you to buy dominoes. It is a great game to enhance math skills and a great family game as well. 


We started our next unit in Math- Place Value. They will learn how to write numbers with base ten blocks, show a number in expanded form and understand ten more and ten less than any given number.

Social Studies:
We are starting our next unit- "Good Citizens" this week too. Some key vocabulary terms for this unit are: government, president, vote and symbol.

Academic Update

We have been working so hard over the past month on writing Non Fiction Informational Chapter Books. The students have done such a great job using different craft moves in their writing to teach the reader.




Writing: 

Their Informational Writing pieces will come home after the winter break. Please keep in mind that these writing pieces are not examples of perfect writing, however examples of writing stamina, using non fiction craft moves, and using conventions. They have worked so hard and are very excited to show you their awesome writing.

Math: 
The students have been using different strategies to solve subtraction problems. They have enjoyed rotating through the math centers and enhancing their math skills. We received some new math manipulatives this week. They really enjoyed trying out the new math activities.








Science:

We are finishing Matter during Science. On Friday they experimented with air during our science time. They will write down their observations in their packet. These packets will come home on Friday.
