Happy New Year! I’m so glad to be back at school, and ready for the 2nd semester to begin!
This week, the kids will begin Unit 4 in both Reading and Math. In Reading, we’ll learn our lessons by reading various folktales. We’ll practice the strategies of “Asking and Answering Questions,” as well as focusing on point of view as we read. The kids will have reading homework, as well as a new spelling list.
In Math, we’ll begin Unit 4 by learning about fractions. The kids completed an Intervention with fractions a few weeks ago, so hopefully that background knowledge will help as they learn some new concepts. The first few lessons are two day lessons, so there won’t be homework every night. In my Math class you can expect homework on the following nights.
Monday – No Homework
Tuesday – Homework 4-1
Wednesday – No Homework
Thursday – Homework 4-2
Friday – No Homework
In writing, we’ll begin the semester by working on Cinquain poetry. By the end of the week, we’ll hopefully have created some Cinquain Snow Globe poetry that will be displayed on their lockers.
Our Second Step lesson this week will wrap up the Bullying Unit from December. We’ll also begin a series of Health lessons that will focus on exercise and eating a healthy diet.
Thanks for reading, and have a good week!
