We have another short week this week as there is no school on Friday. Since there is no school Friday there also won't be a spelling test or our weekly homework. Please still read every night! We push ourselves to become better readers by reading books that challenge us! Have that growth mindset!! :)
In reading this week we will be reading a story called Uncle Rain Cloud. We will focus on the skills of visualizing, using metaphors, drawing conclusions and adjective and adverb suffixes. In writing this week the kids will finish their cinquian's and we will learn about diamonte's. They had a lot of fun last week writing their cinquain's and even wrote some beautiful poetry about spring to add to their art projects! At the end of the week we will start learning about folktales and the kids will write their own.
In math this week we will start our chapter on geometry. This week we will focus on describing shapes, looking at lines and angles and identifying polygons. Please continue practicing multiplication and division at home!!
In science this week we will wrap up PLTW and begin a unit on life cycles. In social studies we will finish our lesson about global trade and our community.
I will be gone on Thursday, but Mrs. Young will be in as the guest teacher. I'll be in Big Timber working with a team of teachers on an accreditation review of the high school there. This is one of my last requirements for grad school so I'm pretty excited!
I hope you all have/had a wonderful weekend. We have a bunch of family in town this weekend to watch my niece play soccer, so I'm pretty excited to see them!
