It’s Parent- Teacher Conference Week!
Marking Period 1 has officially ended and it is that time of the year where we get to sit down together and talk about your child’s progress. I am very eager to meet with all of you! Please let me know if you are not sure the day and time of your scheduled meeting. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. See you Wednesday and Thursday!
In the meantime, here is what is happening in Mrs. O’Donnell’s classroom this week…
In Math… this week we will be reviewing for and taking our Chapter 3 test (on Tuesday). We will begin Chapter 4, where we will learn how to divide a 2 digit by an up to 4 digit number.
In Social Studies…we will be learning about the three regions of the 13 colonies: New England, Middle Region, and Southern Region. We will be learning the similarities and differences of each region and how they prospered as colonies. (We have content on Monday and Tuesday, however due to the early dismissal schedule we will NOT be having content Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday.)
In Spelling…our test will be Friday, November 11th. Our words this week are…
entire, hospital, combine, public, chimney, golden, survive, turmoil, absorb, journey, wisdom, whisper, identify, pretzel, establish, capture, furnace, nursery, marvelous, condition
Students will be given their Lesson 9 packets on Friday.
In Reading…we will continue Lesson 8 “When Washington Crossed the Delaware” and end our unit with a Reader’s Theater on Thursday. On Friday, we will begin lesson 9 with the introduction to Robust Vocabulary and continuing reviewing our focus skill, sequencing.
