Week of August 25-29, 2014

It's hard to believe that we have one week of school done already!!  Here are some highlights of the things we will be working on this week.  Please let me know if you have any questions.

Literacy:  We will be focusing on main idea and details.  Students should be able to identify the main idea and tell why it is the main idea.  Also, they should be able to name details that support the main idea.

Writer's Workshop:  We will begin our set-up for Writer's Workshop.  Students will begin to generate ideas of things to write about.

Math:  We will continue to work through Chapter 1: Place Value.  Also, we will begin "Rocket Math."  This is a program that will help students learn and retain their math facts.  We will be starting with multiplication.  Please continue to practice math facts at home.

Social Studies:  We have begun Unit 1.  Today we started a list of vocabulary words.  We will have a quiz over these words in about a week.  There will be more words added to this list.  I have told my students to study a little each day.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
