Week of: May 22- June 1
This week in ELA we will be focusing on our Quarter 4 unit and essential questions. We continue to learn about Heroes, Legends and myths. We will be focusing on what a hero is and the characteristics of a hero. We will finish reading our novel called, "Heroes in Training" and create a wall mural using our summaries that were worked on in class. We continue to work on centers to practice fluency skills using the program called Read Naturally. The students will graph their results each day and work on a variety of passages throughout the week. This week we will be working on reviewing syllable types. We will continue to work on sight words (Red Words) through a multi-sensory approach. In Math we will continue to discuss angles and measurement using a protractor. We continue to work on our computer FAST MATH program for speed and accuracy of our facts. Students should continue to practice facts at home daily. Try the website www.ixl.com for additional practice.
In writer's workshop we are working on our quarter 4 unit on narrative writing. We will finalize our narratives this week then use mentor texts to create new narratives.
