Blue Ribbon Week

Hello Everyone!

I hope you're all ready for Parent Teacher Conferences and Thanksgiving. It was nice to see a few of you at our Blue Ribbon Award celebration on Friday. What a great honor for Oak! Here's what we did during the week:

Reading: We read the selection Dancing Rainbows and we wrapped up our second unit on Celebrations and Traditions.

Math: We finished Topic 8 and took our test on Multiplication Strategies. Please continue to practice your multiplication facts at home.

Science: We took our Life Cycle Test and we published our field guides.

Writing: We completed our Jasper Ridge Expository paper. We also published our Flat Me projects and worked on how to use quotation marks.

Social Studies: We reviewed the purposes of presidents and the branches of our government. We also began brainstorming on an expository paragraph about those branches.

If you haven't already, please fill out the parent teacher conference survey before your conference. I urge you to be on time to your conference so we can utilize the whole 20 minutes.
