Weekly Updates 5/28/19

We have exactly one month left of school together! Please read below for updates and things we will be learning this week.

We will NOT have Letter land words this week because of the short week. That means no spelling homework and no spelling test. 

Look for interm reports going home in Tuesday folders today.

Here are the things we will be learning this week:
Math- We are starting our unit on fractions! This week we will be learning about partitioning shapes into equal shares.
Science- This week we will continue our unit on life cycles. Students will be watching larva turn into painted butterflies. They will be marking the changes daily on a calendar. This week they will begin to create a google slides presentation about the life cycle of butterflies.
Reading– This week we are starting our unit on folktales and fables. We will be reading many different folktales and fables and learn how to “recount” them. After reading each folktale they will identify the characters, setting, evens, problem, solution, and lesson.
Writing– This week we will continue our writing unit on fairy tales. Last week we read many different versions of Jack and the Beanstalk. Students will start to write their own version of this classic fairy tale this week. In the end students will be creating their own iMovie trailers about their story.
Tower of Books-The final tower of books is due on June 12th. Please have your child also bring in their favorite book from the tower on THIS DAY or before.  The final book tasting will be June 21st at 12:00. Mark your calendars! This will also be a final writing celebration!
