All students need a Good Fit book in their Good Fit Book Bags, a healthy snack ( no nuts - we have allergies), and a bottle of water for school each day.
Grammar: We will have a quiz on "Comparing Adjectives" on Thursday, June 13th
Daily Five (Reading/writing):
Listen to Reading: Loving the 2nd book of "The Genius Files".
Read to Self: All students now have a Good Fit Book and a Good Fit Bookbag (GFBB). This bag must come to and from school each day. Every student is responsible for reading 20-30 minutes a night Monday through Thursday and 20 minutes once over the weekend. I will check their Reading log every Monday to make sure they have read and have a parent initial for each night. We will practice Read to Self daily and work to increase our stamina.
The kids are doing a great job with our new book club – "A Family Apart" about the Orphan Train adventures. Reading, written responses, and vocabulary in a packet for Chapters 11-13 are due Monday, June 10th. I have been really working with them to write detailed responses using evidence from the text to support their answers.
Work on Writing: We will be writing letters to the "New 5th graders".
Read to Someone: The students will continue to work on fluency and expression.
Word Work: The students learned how to become experts in six new Vocabulary Skill Centers. In addition, they will be working on identifying and defining new vocabulary in their new Book Clubs.
We will have a Math exam on Monday, June 10th in our homerooms.
Next week we will be learning about reflection and refraction and doing some hands on activities with the light boxes.
