This newsletter is written for the coming week of Oct. 2nd
Reading Workshop: This week in reading we read "Yonder Mountain." We looked at characteristics that made it a folktale. We also concentrated on the main characters and describing them. We practiced on pulling out examples from the text that fit the character trait for each character.
Clever: Clever can be accessed on any device at home. Go to the Clever website on any device. Then log in as student and scan the QR Code. They will have access to everything on Clever then.
Mobymax is a great resource for extra skill learning. This can be accessed through Clever.
Razkids is a great reading source that can be accessed through Clever.
Writing workshop: The students have mapped their books into chapters and subheadings within their chapters. They have done a great job filling the subheadings with their own information and researched information. We are now ready to write our introduction and rough draft of our chapters.
Word work: We did more work with long O and next week we will focus our attention on adjectives.
Math: This 3rd unit has been an introduction to the basics of mult. and div. We will have the test over unit 3 next Friday.
Addition and Subtraction - Students should be practicing simple facts at home. It is really important that they know these.
