Here is an overview of what we will be doing this week in our CORE SUBJECTS:

Reader’s Workshop–This week, students will be fully engaged in Daily Five activities.  Students will write their Reader’s Response for a reading assessment grade.  Reader’s Response letters are graded using a Rubric.  Students will meet with me in small guided reading groups to work on reading strategies.  This week’s groups will meet to practice reading strategies that will help them to summarize the text.  Students will highlight and discuss important parts of the text.  In addition, students will complete classwork activities with Word Work and Listen To Reading on Epic Books.

Writer’s Workshop-  Biographies have been put on hold until further notice.  With Social Studies assignments due this month,  students will be expected to research a famous person in history, so to prevent redundancy, I have delayed our biography work.  Instead……This week,  students will begin writing activities to develop a writing piece that will teach others a skill that students are experts in.  This week we will begin by working on introductory paragraphs and creating bubble maps in our notebooks for our body paragraphs.  Bubble maps help students with organization and elaboration of ideas.

Math-In Math, students will continue Unit 2 with Ms. Wise.  This week, students will practice multi-digit multiplication and convert units of measure..  Lesson 2-4 to 2-7 will be covered.  there will be a Checking Progress quiz on Friday.
