Writing- We are finishing up our final copies of our informational writing. Most students are finished. There are a handful that needed to finish up today. For the rest of the week, we are working on activities for Thanksgiving. We are learning and writing a class compact, much like the compact the pilgrims had on the Mayflower.
Reading- Our writing unit leads us into our reading lesson for the week and we are continuing to learn about the pilgrims. We will use the book "Molly's Pilgrim" to help us learn about the trip to the America and some history behind Thanksgiving.
Math- We are continuing to work on 2 step word problems. This week we will learn about making a picture to help them solve a 2 step word problem. Later in the week, students will learn about how to solve a 2 step word problem where they will use more than one operation. PLEASE keep working on math facts with your child. Many students do not have their multiplication facts and this makes our math much harder for them to solve.
Social Studies- We are learning about the 3 branches of government and what each branch does.
