This week the children will read the story "Technology Wins the Game." Students regularly encounter informational writing in textbooks and on the internet. This text explains some technological advances in sports. The author includes the steps in a process to help students understand how scientists make improvements to the equipment and materials that athletes use. Our target skill this week will be sequence of events in a text, and the grammar concept for the week will be irregular plural nouns. The students will complete their essay wherein they respond to literature, and they will begin to write a cause and effect paragraph.
*The students will no longer be studying the spelling words that correspond to the weekly story. Rather, there will be three spelling groups each with different words that target those children's strengths and challenges.
The children will be assessed on the content covered in chapter 6.
*Please have your child practice multiplication facts daily!
We will continue our study of Citizenship. The children will learn that communities depend on citizens to participate in their government. We will focus on rights of citizens, duties of citizens, and being a good citizen.
This week we will begin our study of plants. The children will learn how plants grow and change. They will learn about the life cycles of some plants; how to classify plants; how plants reproduce using seeds formed in flowers or cones; and how roots and stems take in and transport, and sometimes store, the materials that the plant needs to grow.
Although we are trying to foster independence in the children, please be sure to check your child's backpack and folder daily in order to keep abreast of his/her studies.
Please send in tissues and wipes if you are able!
Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions/concerns, and thank you for guiding your child on his/her educational journey!
