Here is what is happening in Mrs. O’Donnell’s classroom this week…
In Math… we will begin Chapter 5 this week. Students will learn how to round and estimate decimals, add decimals, and will use the Associate, Commutative, and Identity Property to add whole numbers and decimals mentally.
In Social Studies… we will continue our Revolutionary War unit this week. We will learn in detail about the Battles of Lexington/Concord and Bunker Hill. We will also learn about the importance of the Second Continental Congress this week. Students will engage in activities that include reading articles, creating timelines, and watching videos linked to these specific objectives. Students will have a quiz on the information they have learned so far on Thursday. Study guides will be given out on Monday.
In ELA…we will read our story on Monday “When the Circus Comes to Town” and continue with our focus skill: Theme. We will be tested on our vocab words on Wednesday and take our comprehension/focus skill assessment on Thursday for this story. Students will identify the theme in (my favorite) The Bernstein Bears Series with partners on Thursday to reiterate the identification of themes in a variety of stories.
In Writing…we will continue with our personal narratives and write a text dependent analysis for Lesson 7 “When the Circus Comes to Town”.
In Spelling…No spelling this week! Students will receive Lesson 9 packets on Thursday.
