This newsletter is written for the coming week of Nov. 20th
Reading Workshop: We read about Albertosaurus. We found main idea and supporting details.
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: Our nonfiction books are finished. I will be putting these up on Seesaw shortly so that they can be viewed. Our writing prompts are coming along really well. The students are doing a great job using the articles for facts and elaborating on those facts. The students are practicing how they will see nonfiction writing on ILearn.
Word work: We are now learning different syllable types and how to use them to sound out and spell larger more complex words. This past week we worked on words that end in sure, ture, tion, sion, and le. We practiced using what we know about syllables to help us spell these words and other words.
Math: We are doing much better at learning our 2's, 5's and 10's. We are using our 1's, 2's, and 5's facts to help us decompose other factors to make easier to multiply with larger numbers. We have been working on learning our 3's and 4's. Students have fact triangles at home to study. We are working at having the students memorize these facts.
Addition and Subtraction - Students should be practicing simple facts at home. It is really important that they know these.
