Dear Parents,

  • We are performing in the school Black History Celebration on Tuesday, February 28.  Parents are invited to attend the 2 pm performance.  We hope you can make it!
  • Students need to have their own DRY-ERASE MARKER for Math Centers.  Please purchase one for your child ASAP.

Reader’s Workshop: Make sure your child is reading 30-45 minutes nightly, otherwise it will be difficult for them to achieve this goal. ReadnQuiz goals will be graded on the percentage of points that they accrue towards their total point goal. Students earn points by taking reading quizzes after they finish any IR or GR book. This week, students will work on Daily 5 activities: Read To Self, Guided Reading, Listen To Reading, and Word Work. Students will also complete work in the class novel, Maniac Magee

Writer’s Workshop: This week, students will begin work on their next essay format: Expository.  Students will research an ecosystem to develop an informative essay about it.

Math: In Math, students will continue work in Chapter 6.  Students will work on converting measurements, creating line plots to display data, and work with concepts of volume.  Lessons 6.3-6.6 will be covered.

Science: This week, students will continue work in their new unit of study:  Ecosystems, with Ms. Pfeiffer.

Social Studies: Students will continue work in Chapter 8.  They will discover the taxes that Britain had placed on the colonists and how they led to events like the Boston Massacre.
