# The Week of 1/29…

I cannot believe this week marks the end of January! This year is flying! On Friday- your child will be coming home with their marking period 2 report card. Please sign the yellow envelope and return to school. As always- email me with any questions/concerns 🙂

Here is what is happening in Mrs. O’Donnell’s classroom this week…

In Math… we will continue with Chapter 9 this week with a quiz on Monday to review lessons 1 through 5. We will also be  learning how to subtract unlike fractions, estimate sums and differences, add and subtract mixed numbers, subtract with renaming, and solve problems by determining reasonable answers. Lots to learn this week! We will have our Chapter 9 test next week (mid week).

In Social Studies… this week we will continue with our government unit by diving deep into the Bill of Rights!

In ELA…we will finish our Lesson 14 TDAs this week and wrap up this story all together. We will move on to Lesson 16 “A School Story” and be introduced to a new set of vocab words and a new focus skill: Making Inferences. We will practice making inferences within texts throughout the week through a variety of activities.

In Grammar…we will learn all about pronouns this week!

In Spelling…Spelling Packets for Lesson 17 are due this Friday 2/2.  Our test will also be on 2/2.  Spelling words are getting harder and harder each week. Spelling packets may be getting more difficult as well. Packets of the definitions and examples of each spelling word are always available for your students to take home to help them complete their packets.  The spelling words this week are….
