We are heading into our final week before Thanksgiving Break! Thank you all for signing up for Parent Teacher Conferences; I’m looking forward to meeting with you in a few short days. Please be sure to fill out your Parent Pre-Conference Form and send it back with your child this week. This will allow me to plan to an efficient conference that meets your needs.
The second trimester is underway! The students explored Patriot, Loyalist, and Neutralist perspectives through Reader’s Theatre in Social Studies. As we dug deeper into geometry, the students developed formulas for geometric principles and then applied their knowledge through extended responses. Students have explored many text structures in nonfiction and have done a wonderful job finding evidence to support their opinions in group discussions. The students have been expanding their knowledge of Grammar and Spelling while focusing on the purpose of applying the rules with clarity in our writing.
In our final week before Thanksgiving Break, we will be accomplishing a lot! We will be moving into Unit 4 for Math by exploring friendly parts mental math and partial quotients division. In Reading, we will finish our exploration of text structures and tackle unfamiliar vocabulary with context clue strategies. As writers, we will begin the process of learning how to write personal narratives with focus, sensory details, and engaging dialogue! In Social Studies, we will explore “the other side” of the American Revolution as we move from Patriot perspectives to Loyalist ones as well.
