I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday and a Happy New Year! My Christmas vacation included a lot of quality family time and lots of cuddles with this little guy! We are almost half way through our school year. I can’t even believe it!!
Here is what is happening in Mrs. O’Donnell’s class this week…
In Math… we will begin Chapter 8 this week. We will learn how to interpret fractions, understand how to identify the least common multiple of two numbers, learn how to put fractions into simplest form and work on word problems where we have to guess and check in order to find the answer. We will have a quiz on Friday to assess what we have learned so far!
In Social Studies… this week will be my final week with Mrs. P’s homeroom. We will review and take our assessment on Friday. My kiddos will be back with me for the final week of Marking Period 2 (next week) to begin our Opinion Writing Unit during content time. (Starting Marking Period 3 (1/16)- we will begin our Government Unit!)
In ELA…we will finish up our Lesson 12 TDA’s on Monday. We will begin our Lesson 13 story with a new set of vocab words and a new focus skill- Cause and Effect! We will read “Stormalong” on Thursday and Friday.
In Grammar…We will learn about three kinds of conjunctions in sentences.
