Writing: This week we finished our first series books and today we made the cover for our books. Next week we will be starting a chapter book. We will be writing the first two chapters on Monday and Tuesday.
Reading: Next week we will be taking a practice reading assessment. This is to help prepare the kids for the actual reading assessment that will be given to them on the 28th. The difference with this assessment is that I will not be able to read it to the kids. They are expected to read it and answer comprehension questions about the passage they just read. The good part is that the kids have really been pushing themselves and are showing huge growth in reading!
Math- Unit 12 is a short unit. We will be taking the assessment for unit 12 Tuesday of next week. I am sending home an additional study guide tonight that does NOT have to be completed, but would be great practice for the kids for the assessment we will be taking next week. If they turn it in complete on Monday, I will give them some extra Dojo points!
The next unit is telling time using an analog clock. Feel free to start practicing at home. They will be drawing the hands correctly on clocks.
Science- We will be learning the parts of a plant and the life cycle of plants next week.
