10.15 to 10.19: A Glimpse at our Week…

Remember- Friday 10/19 is an early dismissal day. (1:30 pm)

Here is what is happening in Mrs. O’Donnell’s class this week:

Math: Students will continue with our division chapter this week. We will learn how to use compatible numbers to estimate quotients, learn how to solve division problems using the distributive property and partial quotients, divide 4 digit numbers by 1 digit numbers, understand how to place the first digit in a division problem, and solve division problems that result in quotients that have zeros. This week, we will also start a new math fluency program called Spring Math. I am excited to get started with this to work on class wide interventions. 

ELA: Students will continue to identify theme this week. We will take our Lesson 6 comprehension/vocab assessment on Tuesday. We will develop themes by using Google Slides to create digital children’s books. 

Writing: We will be working on 2 column notes and how to use them to complete a text dependent analysis. We will begin our first graded TDA this week. 

Spelling: Lesson 7 spelling test will be on Friday. Packets are due Friday as well. Go to  https://www.spellingcity.com/users/mrsodonnell007 to practice spelling words from lesson 7. These words are starting to get CHALLENGING! Be sure to encourage your children to study their words every night!

Grammar: We will identify subjects in imperative sentences this week. 

TWO SPECIAL EVENTS THIS WEEK! 1.) On Wednesday, PPL will be coming in to do a lesson on how we can help conserve energy. A letter should have gone home with your child a few weeks ago. Your child will be bringing home a “Think Energy” Kit with some pretty neat stuff inside! 2.) On Thursday, we will meet with our Buddy class (Mrs. DeLong’s 2nd graders.) We will be doing a fun fall activity with our younger friends!
