January 25 – 27
- Today we said goodbye to our friend, Naiya. Thank you for all the memories and laughs, Naiya. We will miss you so much! Good luck in Virginia.
- Next week is Spirit Week! A bulletin was sent home today in the blue folder to explain how to dress up and celebrate each day. The winning class in Elementary will get a donut party, so students are encouraged to participate!
Learning Objective: Students will be able to… ask and answer questions about who, what, where, when, why, and how to demonstrate their understanding in a text.
Summary: We are continuing with our third reading unit: Reading Bigger Books, and we will focus on improving our fluency. Students will continue to practice reading with the intent that an author brings to a particular book, using their own voices, inflections and gestures to bring out the author’s intent and will also work to read with a smooth, steady, confident voice.
Learning Objective: Students will be able to… share and support their opinion in writing.
Summary: We are continuing our third writing unit about opinion writing. Students will continue to write letters to a specific audience about their favorite books and persuade others to love them as much as they do. They will uncover and form opinions about the books they have read, thinking deeply about the characters. Our goal is to state clear opinions and support those ideas with evidence.
Learning Objective: Students will be able to…solve sums and differences within 100.
Summary: We will begin our fourth unit and in this unit we will be learning addition and subtraction to 200 and solving word problems to 100. The first topic we will be focusing on within this unit is sums and differences within 100. Later we will move onto strategies for composing and decomposing a ten.
Learning Objective: Students will be able to… know their roles and responsibilities in the communities they are a part of.
Summary: Students have really enjoyed learning about their roles as citizens and different government leaders. We will continue our learning by discussing that we live in one world with many people and many different cultures.
