Here is what is happening in Mrs. O’Donnell’s classroom this week…
In Math… we will continue with Chapter 7 this week and learn how to solve problems by working backwards, figure out what comes next in patterns, and learn about ordered pairs. On Tuesday, we will take our Chapter 4-6 Benchmark and on Wednesday we will have a quiz on the lessons we have learned so far in Chapter 7.
In Social Studies… I will continue Revolutionary War unit with Mrs. P’s kiddos this week. We will be covering the Battle of Bunker Hill, the 2nd Continental Congress and Valley Forge.
In ELA…we will continue and finish with Lesson 11 this week “Sailing Home”. We will be comparing and contrasting this story to a paired text this week. We will be doing a fun hands on activity mid week that involves comparing and contrasting using Cootie Catchers! On Wednesday we will take our Vocab assessment. Thursday begins our new Lesson “The Ultimate Field Trip”. We will continue working on comparing and contrasting as our focus skill, however will be introduced to new vocab words. This lesson is tested and will include a TDA.
