Welcome to our class web page! I am so happy to have your child as a part of my Holthouse Hero crew! Please use this website to keep up with the latest updates in our classroom. On this web page you will find a weekly schedule with a general outline for instruction. Please keep in mind that instruction & homework may vary or change throughout the week based on student needs and understanding. I know this school year is going to be different, but I look forward to partnering with families to make it the best year ever for our kids!
Week at a Glance: March 1st-5th
This week we will begin our new informational unit in which we will describe the connections we see in a text, as well as the relationship between historical events, scientific concepts, or step in a procedure. We will also continue to use context clues to determine the meaning of unknown words in a text. (RI 3.3, 3.4, 3.8)
This week we will read the story, "Bat Loves the Night," and focus on the sequence connections in the text.
