Parents!! How did this week get started again so quickly!? Here is my blog!!
Black History Month Projects were due yesterday!! We have already started our oral reports and your children are sharing and showing what they have learning!! All projects will be posted for the Gallery Walk this Thursday which will take place from 6:00-8:00. Please come for food, poetry, dancing, singing, and of course, to see all the displays that the students have been working on!! By the way, there will be no homework that night! Hope to see you there!
Language Arts: Our main focus this week is on Cause and Effect. We are also finding compound words in what we are reading. Students are also in Literacy Groups and reading books at their reading levels with classmates. What book is your child reading? Please ask them.
Homework: Please help your child organize their thoughts for their presentation of their project. If the project is not yet turned in, it is over-due!! Your child should be reading at least 30 minutes each night. We will review the story again Friday morning before the test, but your child can take their book home Thursday, for the test on Friday, but I will go over it extra in class, so that they can come to the event Thursday night, with no worries about homework.
Math: We are finishing up with Unit 7. We will review again tomorrow and have our Unit 7 test on Thursday. Please look for your child’s Math Journal on Wednesday, for further review.
Homework: Worksheet Monday and Tuesday, Math Journal Review Wednesday for the test on Thursday and no homework Thursday evening (test day and Gallery Walk in the evening).
Social Studies: We have been had our focus on February’s Black History Month. We have been reading poetry (what can your child tell you?), learning about countries in Africa (ask your child) and reading about important African American’s in Chicago. We are now going to spend the rest of this week listening to the presentations from all the work that your children have been doing!
Science: We have started our Motion and Balance Unit. Ask your child about the Peacock Feather experiment and what they learned about balance and motion. We will continue this unit for the next several weeks.
Have a great week!
