Week of November 13
Math:   This week, we will begin learning about liquid volume and mass.
For homework this week, I would like the students to complete one assignment (or more) on their TenMarks account. I have added a new assignment that is due this Thursday. There may be other assignments from last week that can still be completed. Please let me know if you have any questions. 
The students have received a PIN for practicing their math facts using xtramath.org. Please email me if you would like your child's PIN.
Reading:  We continue to work on building reading stamina and making thoughtful book selections.
We are setting goals for ourselves which include reading behavior goals, fluency goals, genre goals, and comprehension goals. 
We are also meeting in small groups to read short texts, answer questions about short texts, and to cite references from the texts.  
Language/Word Study: This week, we will begin to learn about verbs.
We have been concentrating on correctly using capital letters and punctuation in all our sentences.  I am placing a heavy emphasis on these conventions as we proceed through the school year.
Writing:  We will continue narrative writing for the next few weeks. We have begun drafting mysterious stories. The students are working on using imagery, dialogue and suspense. We have started peer editing and revising.
Social Studies: We are learning about map features such as key, legend, grid, compass rose and cardinal directions. We will look at map scale this week. The students will be creating their own maps using all the features they have learned.
Science: We will begin to learn about the properties of soil and rocks. 
Have a wonderful week!
