Math–  Kids have absolutely loved measuring using different units!  This week we will have an assessment on measurement and then will move on to solving various word problems involving two steps with measurement.  This can often be tricky, however, I know the kiddos are up to the challenge!

ScienceWe will finish our unit on weather this week!  The kids will also be engaged some STEM activities where we learn about severe weather.  We will also be getting ready for our upcoming Book Tasting towards the end of the week!

Reading– Students will take their assessment on character responses in a text. Students worked very hard on their puppet shows which showcased this standard. Do not forget to check these out on Seesaw! This week we will be reviewing all the standards taught this quarter by completing a culminating activity involving “pizza building”.

Letterland: We are on Unit 22 of Letterland.  This unit focuses on vowel teams aw and au, as the sound in “pause” and “saw”. A friendly reminder of our spelling procedures, students take their spelling notebooks home on Mondays and bring it back for a completion check on Fridays. Spelling assessments will be given on Fridays.
Writing:  As we continue our poetry unit we are adding to our poetry collection by writing I Am poems and color poems with a focus on including similes in our writing. The students have really enjoyed poetry and have been working really hard on their poems. We can’t wait to share all of our creative work with you at our poetry open mic on Wednesday, March 27th from 12-1pm!
