We will again spend this week setting up our Reader's Workshop environment and introducing the students to our classroom library. Students will have reading assignments each night. Please listen to them read their assignment.
We will spend this week going over nouns and verbs and writing sentences. We will also do a few quick writes, which involves just writing about a specific topic. These short paragraphs are not graded. They are writing pieces that helps me assess their writing skills.
Spelling : Lesson 19 Short e, long e, ee and ea. Things are a little different for Spelling this year. Spelling list will go home on Friday. We will test on Wednesday. Students that don't pass their test will receive intervention.
We have started Chapter 1 and will continue through this week. This is a long chapter and we will probably have a Mid Chapter Test on Friday. This will be the second year we've used the new Math Series that correlates with Common Core Standards. I have students' accounts set-up so they can access the Math Series online.
