T-23 days until summer vacation!

What are we learning this week?
In Math we will begin our unit on 3 Dimensional shapes while continuing to review multiple types of word problems. In Social Studies we will dig deeper into George Washington Carver, his life, and his great impact on the society of his time. Our writing block this week will be filled with many exciting things such as book buddies, the media center, and a visit from Wellstar. Students will participate in their daily 5 activities each day as I begin to move into final reading level evaluations for the year.

*Please make sure your child is reading every night. Students need to be on a level I by the end of our final quarter in order to be ready for 2nd grade*

T-33 days until summer vacation!  

What is your child learning this week?
Its time to push for the finish! This week in Math we will begin our unit on 2-D shapes and partitioning. Our Social Studies hero of the week will be George Washington Carver. Students will learn about his life and his impact on our society today. We will start up our narrative writing unit with Spring Break writing. As a reminder, students will be graded on all three writing types during our final quarter (narrative, informative, and opinion). During our reading time I will continue to pull reading groups daily. We will focus primarily on reading comprehension and fluency through cloze reading passages. At the end of this quarter, students should be reading on a level H.
