Fact tests- Beginning the 2nd nine weeks, we will take a weekly timed fact test. They will all add up to half of a major grade. This week we will take a practice fact test to see how we do. Students can practice their facts in fun ways like rolling dice
This week in reading we are learning how to notice punctuation. Our voice should change when we see a question mark or exclamation mark versus when we read aloud a telling sentence with a period. Students will also review how to make predictions and use context clues to prove their thinking with text evidence.
Reading Homework: Moving Out Day passage
For writing this week students will continue to write small moment personal stories. We will focus on what makes for a catchy beginning, a meaty middle and exciting end. Students should review when to use a period, question mark and exclamation mark in addition to capitalizing the first word in each sentence. This week we will also discuss transition words and how they can make our writing flow more smoothly from one detail to the next.
Spelling: ng and nk
wink, sing, sink, king, long, sung, hang, blank, wing, junk, think, bring, stung, good, sentence, man, thing, where, great, say
For math students will continue to learn about place value this week. We will practice using standard, word, and expanded form of a number. We will also take a practice fact test.
Math Homework: p. 95-96
In science we will continue to discuss how to classify objects by their physical properties. Students should be able to notice many attributes of an object such as shape, size, color, texture, mass, flexibility, buoyancy, and being transparent.
Weekly question: Find two objects in your house. Draw them and describe their physical properties (mass, flexibility, shape, color, texture)
This week in social studies we will continue to study maps and key features that need to be included to create a map. Students will create and use maps to locate different types of places. They will complete a major grade project on Tuesday.
