This will be our last week of homework and Friday will be our final spelling test. We will still practice spelling words but they will be from the word wall. Students will dictate (write) sentences using words from the word wall. I will grade the dictated sentences for correct spelling, spacing, and punctuation. This grade will take the place of the weekly spelling test grade.
In reading this week we will read a non-fiction story called "Simple Machines." We will integrate reading and science by learning parts of machines. Skills for this week are to blend and read words with diphthongs oi, oy; read to find the main idea and details; pronouns; homonyms; and daily blending, coding and reading in Saxon Phonics.
In Math we will work on addition and subtraction; we will learn fact families which are related addition and subtraction facts.
In Science we will learn about parts of a plant (seed, roots, stem, leaf, flower). We will grow our own plants in class.
In Social Studies we will learn how technology has changed from the past to now.
