In reading this week we will continue reading Discovering the Story of Earth and we will be focusing on the role water plays in the story of earth. We will focus on the skills of making connections, distinguishing fact from opinion, and making analogies. We will start our unit 4 inquiry projects at the end of this week.
In writing we are finishing up our persuasive advertisement posters. Once we finish them we will share them with author's chair. I am excited for the kids to share, they came up with some really creative ideas! We will also spend some time this week on linking verbs, contractions, and adjectives.
We will not be doing our math rotations this week as we will be doing some end of quarter assessments. We will be reviewing and then assessing: time to the nearest minute, elapsed time, division as sharing, multiplication and division problem solving, finding the unknown number, and using the properties of multiplication. I sent an email, but just in case you didn't get it, I won't need my math volunteers this week since we won't be doing math workshop.
In social studies this week we are learning about Martin Luther King Jr. and in science we will be using the i-pads to explore the forces of lift, weight, thrust, and drag that we learned about last week. In art we will continue our artist study of Monet.
We ended the week with a real tough time listening and following directions, I hope everyone is ready to start fresh on Monday and will come ready to listen and learn!!
I hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was wonderful! On Friday night Tymon and I attended Aubrey's play and she did such a great job! We then spent Saturday in Red Lodge snowshoeing and is was so nice to get out and enjoy the snow a little bit! I know basketball season is starting, remember if you bring in a note with the time, place, day, and color of you team if I am around that weekend I would love to come! Enjoy your Sunday!
