Weekly Update: September 9-13

Posted on: September 8, 2013

Reading: In reader’s workshop, we are continuing our lessons about literary sign posts. A sign post is a way an author grabs the readers attention. We learned all about the contrast and contradiction signpost while reading our close text, Thank You, Ma’am. This week we will learn about the next sign post, which is the Aha Moment. Aha moments are those moments when we realize something, and in that realization, changes our actions.
In guided reading, the students will be working on learning and applying the UNRAAVEL reading strategy.

Language Arts: This week, the students will write a paragraph to tell the theme of a specific passage. The students will textual evidence to support their reasoning.

Math: We will be adding and subtracting multi-digit numbers.

Social Studies: The students worked very hard on their economics unit. We will be finishing up the economics journals. The end of unit test will be coming home in your child’s Thursday folders.

Science: It’s water, water, everywhere in Mrs. Winsett and Mrs. Willey’s class! We are covering the water cycle this week. We will review the three states of water and the temperatures that change each state. Then, the students will learn all about the water cycle. I am hoping to finish up on Friday with the unit test. We may need to push it back to next week, depending on time.
