The theme for this week's reading is "Be Unique"! We want to celebrate all the different talents, personalities, and characteristics that make every person uniquely them. We have amazing artists, writers, organizers, mathematicians, readers, techies , and many more in our classroom. It is a community of sharing strengths and weaknesses to build one another up.
Reading: Problem and Solution, visualizing as we read, understanding folktales, action verbs, review of possessives
Math: Continuing division particularly as the inverse of multiplication, quiz on 3's and 4's on Thursday
Science: scientific method with the purpose of setting up an experiment following the scientific method steps
Social Studies: local, state, and federal government
*AR- 6 points by Friday, the 18th; many have already passed the 6 point mark and are well on their way to meeting their goal!
*Grammar Quizzes- the class will only have a grammar quiz every two weeks rather than every week. I feel that they do not have sufficient time to grasp a new skill and test on it every week. I am going to bundle the skills, review more, and test every other week.
*Box Tops are due by this Friday, the 18th
*1st Quarter Awards , FRIDAY, the 18th, 1:45-2:30 pm in the lunchroom
*Fall Break, October 21-25
