Here's what's happening this week:
Reading: Students are now publishing their subtopic from the Revolutionary War. They have researched, synthesized their information, drafted, and edited. Almost all students are now in the publishing phase of this significant project.
Later this week, we will shift gears in reading and switch back to fiction with a unit on "reading with the lens of power and perspective." We will be revisiting previously learned fiction reading skills and strategies while we notice who has the "power" in our mentor texts and our own reading.
Math: This week we will finish up multiplying fractions with a quiz on this topic on Tuesday. We will then move on to a short unit on line plots.
Some important upcoming events:
03/19 - McDonald's Night - 4:00 - 8:00 (previously listed for 03/12)
04/10 - School Store during lunch
04/11 - PTN meeting 10:00 in IMC
04/11 - Young Author's Night - 6:30 pm
Our class is scheduled for last lunch, which is 1:00. I believe that the class would benefit from a mid-morning snack to help the students maintain their focus during lessons. Since we will be working through snack, I ask that you limit the snack to one healthy food item per day. (some examples: one piece of fruit, carrot sticks, pretzels, crackers) NO PEANUTS OR PEANUT PRODUCTS OF ANY TYPE DUE TO PEANUT ALLERGIES IN THE ROOM. Thank you for your cooperation!
I ask that you check our class page and class calendar on a regular basis. I will update it weekly with information about our class and other important school announcements.
