Planting Seeds of Knowledge

This week we had a blast planting our seeds in our planters. Each student is responsible for watching one seed's progress. In addition to our mini-landforms, we worked on some geographic landform drawings. The students will present their landform's to the class next week.

In math, we are still working on rounding, focusing on the tens, hundreds, and thousands units. In reading, we finished our first theme: skills inferences, cause and effect, and sequencing. The class did a great job with our writing exercise for the book, A Bad Case of the Stripes.

Here's what's coming up:
  • We'll have a Math test on Tuesday
  • On Wednesday, right after school, we'll have a 15 minute Math tutorial for parents to introduce our new homework program
  • For reading, we'll have our Theme 1 test and we'll be starting our first novel chalk box
  • In writing we'll work on narrative writing and will have our first formal writing assessment
  • We'll keep working with seeds for science
  • For social studies, we'll be discussing the compass rose
  • Don't forget: book orders are due Sunday by Midnight 
See you on Monday!
