Week of: April 24-28
This week in ELA we will be focusing on our Quarter 4 unit and essential questions. We will be learning about Heroes, Legends and myths. We are exploring different Gods and Goddesses of Mount Olympus and reading a variety of myths. 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 our unit on variables and expressions with all four operations. We will take a test this week on unit 6 and 18. Practice packets will go home Monday night for homework. It is not necessary to complete every problem in the packet. It can be just used as a review of concepts we learned in class. 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 have used mentor texts to identify story elements for narrative writing by creating storyboards. We will continue to use our strategies and graphic organizers to formulate writing paragraphs.
School Supplies Request: We are in need of more pencils please.
