In Language Arts we are learning about theme. We will read many short stories and lots of fables to practice theme. Our vocabulary strategy is personification. Spelling words are from Unit 1, Week 3. If you need another copy of the spelling words you can get them down below in my PDF documents. Each night the students will need to read for 20 minutes. Parents please sign their reading logs for your student. This is the only way I know that they completed their homework. Students were given their homework for the week in their agendas. Homework will be posted weekly on the calendar below.
In Social Studies this week we are continuing Unit 1, Geography. We will learn about the Geography of the United States by studying physical features of North America. We will also be testing on the New England states. Students will need to learn their states by Tuesday, August 25th. We will then move on to Middle Atlantic states. If students can also write down the capitals of the states they will count as bonus points. The test for Middle Atlantic States will be Tuesday, September 1.
Monday, August 31st is a date to keep on your calendar. We will be having our 4th & 5th grade Open House from 6-7:30. Lots of great information and a great way to earn informational PI time.
Thank you for sharing your precious student with me this year!
