What we're up to in Room 24:

Week of January 7th

ELA: We are starting Unit 4 "Many Characters, Many Points of View."  The essential question for this unit is "how can a story change depending on who tells it?" Many of the stories in this unit are fables that are teaching morals. Students have been reading and annotating these stories and looking for the moral of the story. They are also learning about how Point of View affects the story. 

Word work: Students have been using their Word Work Choice Board to practice "ee" "ea" and "e_e" words, as well as challenge words that have double consonants and -ed or -ing endings.

Math: We started Topic 8 which is all about Addition with Regrouping. Students are learning how to regroup ones into tens and how to show their work using models, numbers, and words. We have been practicing how to check our addition by using subtraction and vice versa. This week we are covering topics 8-1 through 8-4.

Social studies: Students will be making their New Year's Resolutions! We will focus on goal setting and personal improvement in 2019.


Week of January 14

ELA: Continuing Unit 4 in our annotation booklet. Students will learn to sequence events in a story and analyze the importance of the order of events. We will continue to look for the moral of the story and what the characters have learned.

Word work: "ea" "a_e" and "ai" words

Math: 8-5 through 8-9; Topic 8 test will be the following week.

Science: TBD
