Week of March 1st
Reading: This week we begin our Informational Unit in reading. Our focus will be looking at a sequence of events and putting steps in order from beginning to middle to end. We will use various short texts to teach this skill. We will also study and discuss what would happen if a sequence is out of order or if a step is skipped.
Writing: We will continue our Fairy Tale unit this week our focus will be creating the problem and sequence of events in the story.
Math: We will continue Module 5 this week. Our focus will be naming fractional units and being able to write both the unit form and fraction form. We will also be working shaded and unshaded parts of a whole and labeling both sections.
Science: We will continue our unit on animals through time.
Structured Word Inquiry: This week we will work with the base "re". The students will hypothesize the spelling of words with this base and will create word sums. They will discuss parts of speech and eventually create a matrix to match the words they've discovered.
