Week of September 17
Reading: I will be assessing reading and developing plans for our students. We are working on reading stamina and establishing classroom reading routines and expectations. We will begin to set goals. I am encouraging the children to try to spend 20 minutes reading each night.
I have assigned a Readworks online reading assignment for your child. It is due Friday.
Writing: We will continue writing about true stories. The students have selected their best story and are in the process of revising and editing. They will type their final copy in Google Docs.
Word Study/Writing Skills: We continue to review long vowel sounds.
Math: We will begin to review place value up to the thousands place. We will review expanded form, standard form and word form. Additionally, we will begin to learn about rounding numbers to the nearest 10 and nearest 100.
We have the opportunity to use Tenmarks in our math class. Tenmarks is a math program that encourages students to answer challenging word problems. I have assigned 3 assignments on Place Value. We tried the program on Friday, and I sent home login information on Friday. I would like students to try to complete one Tenmarks assignment for homework this week.
Have a great week!
