Here is what is happening in Mrs. O’Donnell’s class this week….
Math: Students will review for their Chapter 5 test on Tuesday and we will take our assessment on Wednesday. Students will be introduced to our next Chapter: Multiplying and Dividing Decimals later in the week. We will learn how to estimate products of whole numbers and decimals and we will multiply whole numbers by decimals.
ELA: We will start a new focus skill this week: Comparing and Contrasting! We will also read our Lesson 11 story, working on comprehension of the text. We will have our Lesson 10 vocab assessment on Wednesday and be introduced to a new list later in the week.
Social Studies:We will continue our unit on the Revolutionary War this week. We will use google maps to “pin” significant locations we have learned about so far and learn about how we defeated the British in the final battles (with the help from France!) We will begin reviewing for our test. Students will be receiving their study guides on Wednesday which will give them plenty of time to study! Our test will be next Tuesday (December 4th)
Spelling: Lesson 11 spelling test will be this Friday. Packets are due on the 30th as well. Go to https://www.spellingcity.com/users/mrsodonnell007 to practice spelling words from lesson 11. These words are starting to get CHALLENGING! Be sure to encourage your children to study their words every night!
Grammar: We will identify irregular nouns this week.
Reminders*- Friday Folders are due every Wednesday
Our NEW character education theme for DECEMBER is Manners!
