Week of April 11-15, 2016

Here’s a peek at next week:

Spelling words: eight, seven, four, nine, one, twenty, forty, thirty, fifty, number

Phonics- review

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 talk about figurative language (idioms, similes, metaphors, and personification), as well as, poetry.

L.Arts:  We will review skills already covered this year. 

Writing Workshop: Students will review and continue writing an opinion piece. Students will form an opinion and write a review about a book, movie, restaurant or store. They will have the opportunity to choose what they would like to write about. What are some important details I need to include in order to convince my reader?  How should I introduce my topic? Should I share how I feel about it? Should I compare it to other like places? We will look at mentor texts to get ideas and compare them. 

Math: Students will continue going over MAP review skills. We will review addition, subtraction, even, odd, polygons, number lines, story problems, time, graphing, base ten, etc. 

Science: Students will continue to learn about seeds and flowers. They will have the opportunity to observe what happens when  plants are not given light, soil or water vs. others that are cared for. Students will be able to label the parts of the plant and observe the inside of a seed. We will think about what plants need to grow and live.  We will have the opportunity to learn about the life cycle of a plant.

Thank you so much everyone for helping make our 1st grade play a success! We really appreciate all volunteers, parents and grandparents! Without you it would not be possible to put on a production like this! :) 
We are gearing up for our final MAP Math assessment. Our class will take the assessment on April 15th at 10:00. It is important that ALL students attend this day. We suggest getting a good nights sleep and breakfast so that all students can be focused and ready to do their best.
