Obviously, the arrival of March excites me! Winter has seemed to drag on a bit over the past few weeks. I am ready for some sun and warmer weather!
We have a fun week ahead! It is our Literacy Week! Be sure to check for our dress up days each day!
Family Literacy Night-
Our annual Family Literacy Night is Tuesday, February 27th. There will be all kinds of fun activities and games that have do with our school-wide book, The One and Only Ivan! Come and go as you please between 6:00 and 7:00 and be sure to visit the Book Fair!
Here is what we are working on the the classroom:
Writing- Students will be finishing up their second and final opinion piece for 3rd quarter.
Math- We are working on finding equivalent fractions and comparing fractions. We have been doing something called "Practice Buddy" in class. Their worksheets are started with me and they do a few interdependently in group with me and I check those. The rest they SHOULD be bringing home to show you and use for any extra practice as needed. :)
Reading- We will review for our 3rd Quarter District Reading Assessment and take it Wednesday. Reading groups will look a little different for this week as I start giving some students the DRA before the end of 3rd quarter. The DRA is not required to be given this quarter, I just have a few that will need to take it. (It is only required to be given to every student during 1st and 4th quarters)
Social Studies- We will be looking at producers and consumers for our economics unit this week!
