Here’s a peek at next week!
Phonics Family Words: helpless, useless, careless, playful, restful, hopeful, fastest, newest, smartest, sillier
Reading: Daily 5 with emphasis on beginning, middle, and ending, finding evidence in text to support answer and retelling the story. What was the author's purpose? This week we will be reviewing skills we have already learned (comprehension strategies, parts of information text, things to learn from pictures, questioning strategies).We will also review suffixes, story elements, cause and effect, problem and solution.
L.Arts: We will review skills already covered this year.
Writing Workshop: Students will review and begin a new small moment piece of writing. What do I feel comfortable sharing with others? What is the difference between a watermelon and seed story? Why do I want to tell seed stories? How can I hook my reader?
Math: Students will begin a week long project related to goods and services. They will have the opportunity to create a project to sell, name their business, create ads, and even a business card. On the final day we will try to convince our audience to "buy" our product.
Social Studies: Students will begin to learn about goods and services that people provide for each other as well as what producers and consumers do. Who are producers and consumers? How does each person play a role in the lives of the other? What goods do we buy? What are some services we use?
Positive Discipline: We will continue to model ways to solve our problems independently and review the difference between tattling and telling.
