This is what we will be learning and studying the week of May 22nd to May 26th:

ELA: Our author study of Patricia Polacco will draw to a close. On Monday, we will review Theme, Lesson, Setting, and Comparing/Contrasting two books. Tuesday will find us taking our last Outcome Assessment of the year in ELA. The rest of the week will be spent working a project of choice based on one of Patricia Palocco's works!

MATH:
We will continue to implement EUREKA Math. So far, the kids have LOVED it!!! Our lessons for this week will include:
> Complete a Formative Assessment of the concepts of time and elapsed time
>Begin to study the second part of Module 2: Measuring Weight and Liquid Volume in Metric Units

WORDS THEIR WAY:
Students will continue working on learning word patterns based on their sorts.
Test Day: Tuesday, May 25th

Writer's Workshop: The kids started working on their hard cover Fairy Tale books. When I tell you that they are excited, I'm not even slightly exaggerating! It was time for recess on Friday (today) and they begged me to let them all stay in and continue working on it! That's a pretty good sign, right??? ; ) I have conferenced one on one with each of my writer's and they are confident that their adaptations are really good!

Social Studies/Science: We will be switching gears back to Science and back to Animals.
The kids will be learning about the concepts of migration, animal groups, strength in numbers, social, and group behaviors.
