It’s hard to believe that it’s almost time for Fall Break! We will work hard this week so that we can enjoy some well-deserved rest. We also start a new month this week, and our value of the month is Love.
Here is what we’ll be doing this week.
In Language Arts, we have completed unit 1 and will spend time reviewing some of the content and taking our unit assessments. Students will also be revising their writing and will finish writing a personal narrative piece. Our spelling work this week will review words from the past four weeks, so there is not a new list.
In math, we are finishing our investigation of multiplication and division. The students are making connections between a multiplication scenario and a division scenario and are writing and solving problems using fact families. In addition, they will continue to practice and build fact fluency as the year progresses. We will be taking our unit 1 assessment on Thursday.
In social studies, we will read about map scales and city maps.
We are also still looking for volunteers to help with the bake sale on Friday. We need help specifically in the morning (7:30-8) to help monitor sales. Bake sale items are priced at $1 each. We are asking that items be pre-packaged for easy handling and reasonable to sell for a dollar (for example, cookies might be grouped together or larger baked good could be cut into smaller portions).
