*****Here is an overview of what we will be doing this week in our CORE SUBJECTS:
Reader’s Workshop– Students should be reading 35+ minutes nightly to ensure they will meet their AR goal this quarter!
This week, students will work in Guided Reading groups to read a novel and work on comprehension skills that are deficient. Students who are not meeting for Guided Reading will be working on Daily 5 activities: Read T0 Self, Work On Writing (Reader’s Letter), Listen To Reading, and Word Work. Students may bring their own headphones, with parental permission, to listen to reading online. READERS’ LETTERS MUST BE COMPLETED IN CLASS— this is not homework.
Shared Reading: Students will read an article, “Imagine This Was Your School”, annotate the text, and compose a response to the prompt, “Was Barbara Johns brave?”
This week, students will begin work on their Persuasive writing. We will begin with developing advertisements for imagined cereal, using strategies to persuade the consumer to buy our products. Students will present these and vote for their favorite cereal on Friday.
This week students will begin Unit 6: Data Collection and Adding/Subtracting Fractions. This week students will continue collecting data landmarks, identify line plot mystery charts, and analyze sample data. Students will cover Lesson 6.3, 6.4, 6.5, and 6.6 this week.
This week in Social Studies, students will continue Chapter 4, The Colonies. Students will read Lesson 4 and complete Lesson 4 review questions. There will be a vocabulary quiz over lesson 3 and 4 vocabulary on Friday.
Science (room 314)
This week, Room 314 students will continue work in the Science unit: Microworlds. Students will focus on drawing with detail, and making scientific observations on the properties of objects. Students will use a magnifier to observe details. Students will also test everyday objects to see if they would qualify as magnifiers.
Investigation H: Communication Observations
Investigation I: Does It Magnify?
I expect students to have a composition notebook for science only, and students are required to write out investigations using the 5-Step Scientific Process (Hypothesis, Materials, Procedure, Observations and Data, Conclusion). Students’ notebooks are graded using a Rubric. This counts for 40% of their overall grade. Science notebooks are due on Friday 1/30
