What a fun week of science experiments!! We had lots of fun watching states of matter change by adding heat! Thank you all for the class t shirt orders! We will look amazing wearing those together. Next week starts Fall Conferences, thank you for signing up. They will last around 20 minutes and we will discuss your child's strengths and goals.
Next Week: September 25-29
Writing: We will continue to prewrite and draft personal narratives with a beginning, middle, and end. Students will be encouraged to write about something that happened that gave them a strong feeling.
Spelling and Grammar: about, could, many,out, some,that, them, when
This we will learn a few of the rules for changing a noun from the singular form to the plural form. (y to ies, adding s, when to add es)
Reading: In Reader’s Workshop, we will be looking at strategies that help us to have strong comprehension. Our focal point will be inferring. We are going to be using background knowledge and text clues to make an inference. This will help students better understand what they are reading.
Math: Students will learn many addition solving strategies over the next two weeks. From those strategies, students will choose the few that fit them best to complete word problems. Continue practicing math facts at home, they really help during this 2 digit addition unit!
Science: Students will demonstrate what can be done to materials to change their physical properties such as cutting, folding and sanding. We will have a little Origami fun, and even learn a little about the history of Origami. We will also combine materials to make a structure.
