I hope you are enjoying the long weekend! We had a great week even though it was a little packed due to being off on Monday. We worked HARD on fractions this week. (See picture/students creating fraction bars) Everyone seems to be enjoying the new unit. Here is what we have in store for this week:
Math: In Math we will continue with fractions but we will learn to compare fractions and we will learn about equivalent fractions.
Reading: In Reading we started working through a Coach Book that helps with comprehension and test questions in the Milestone Testing. We are also enjoying reading Mr. Popper's Penguins! Throughout this read aloud we will continue to work on new vocabulary and comprehension. Last week students created reading goals for 2018. We also started a new segment during reading called "shelfies." Students bring a book to showcase and share about if they think others will enjoy it, then they place it on a special shelf for others to read.
Writing: In Writing we are working on our opinion writing unit. The students have no problem stating how they feel about a topic. Now we need to add our convincing reasons and evidence.
Science: In Science we will continue learning about the Regions in Georgia. This week students will learn about what types of plants and animals live in each region and why. At the end of the week they will choose one of the regions to illustrate on a poster to label, write about, and I will display them in the hallway.
Grammar: We will learn about idioms this week in Grammar.
Week in Review:
Monday: MLK Day/No School
Tuesday: Target day
Friday: Make up Guidance lesson with Mrs. Edwards/Parent Reader
Enjoy the weekend!
