ELA- We continue to review adjectives and adverbs. We are currently working on simple and compound sentences. The students continue to read independently while meeting with me to work on fluency and comprehension. Some students are part of a book talk group. They are reading Chocolate Touch. The students have also been working on Zooburst presentations. We will be using this website for a variety of activities.
Math-Last week we started fractions. We are working on recognizing and comparing fractions both on a number line and with visual models. Please continue to practice the multiplication facts. This skill helps students in a variety of ways when looking at fractions.
Social Studies- The students have been keeping up to date with current news. We have been reading and discussing various topics using our Time For Kids. This week, we will be learning about different people who have made a major impact on their communities, i.e., Cesar Chavez.
Science- We continue our work with simple machines. Last week, we participated in the High Tech High Touch presentation. Next week we will be building our own simple machines.
News and Reminders-
Next week, we will be taking the ISAT tests every morning from 9-10 am. There is nothing to do for this. Please help me keep anxiety low by reminding students to just to their best.
Please make note of your March conference and let me know asap if there is a time conflict. Students are expected to come to the Spring conferences.
This Thursday we will be going on a field trip to the Northshore Youth Theater in
Skokie. The bus will be leaving school at 9:00 am and will be returning no later than 11:30. Please make sure your child arrives to school on time.
