This week will be just as busy for 1-Bu. We've got Open House on Tuesday, a Walk-a-thon on Wednesday, a Discovery Lab lesson on Thursday, and hopefully a visit from Officer Marc at some point.
By now, I'm sure you're aware, but Open House is Tuesday, May 22nd, from 7pm-8pm. Please make every effort to attend. Come straight down to the classroom and you'll have plenty of time to see all of the work we've done recently. The students are really looking forward to showing you around.
Along with all that, here's what we'll be working on in the classroom this week:
Reading : This week we're going to extend our inferencing skills to texts other than poetry. We're going to talk about 'hunches.' Hunches are when you just have an idea about what is going to happen, or what a character is really like.
Writing : As we get closer to the poetry reading, we are going to work on using purposeful language to convey certain messages in our poetry. Hopefully we'll have chosen the pieces we are going to read at the poetry reading by the end of this week.
Math : We are going to extend what we know about fractions this week. We'll talk a little bit about equivalent fractions and comparing fractions.
Odds and Ends : Please keep in mind that there is no school this Friday, May 25th, nor next Monday or Tuesday, May 28th or 29th. Happy Memorial Day!
See you on Tuesday night for Open House!
