Weekly Report - Week of October 14-18, 2019
I hope you had a great weekend! If you have not signed up for a conference, please do so ASAP. There are a few dates and times left.
Below you will find information about our classroom/school happenings as well as what students will be working on this week. Please let me know if you have any questions. Have a wonderful week!
Here is what we are working on this week:
Math: This week students will be learning about data – representing and interpreting information in a frequency table, picture graph, and bar graph. We will continue to review multiplication/division facts. Students will have another fact quiz on Friday. Please review the assigned facts nightly with your child. All math homework should have work shown. Homework that is missing work will result in a loss of 10 points.
Reading: Our focus this week will be character traits – describing characters in a story and explaining how their actions contribute to the sequence of events. We still finish with chapter books this week and students will have a chapter book test on Friday. Students should be completing reading homework nightly and answering the assigned chapter book questions. Questions should be restated in complete sentences in the student’s reading journal. Questions that are not restated in complete sentences will result in a loss of 10 points.
Science: We are continuing with our unit on the human body. This unit will allow students to understand the importance of the human body and how it is essential for life, protection, movement, and support. Students will create a “Mr. Bones” model this week. This will be an excellent resource to help them study the names of the bones for their upcoming unit test in a few weeks.
Social Studies: This week, students will learn about various water/landforms (mountains, valleys, island, peninsulas, etc.).
Word Study: Spelling words this week are the “ew and oo” sound. Please make sure students are studying their spelling words nightly in preparation for Friday’s spelling test. Our focus this week will be adverbs – words that describe how, when, how often, and where an action happens.
Writing: Students have completed their rough drafts of their five-paragraph essay. They will spend this week typing their essays.
