Thank you to those families who attended or helped with our Open House this weekend! It was a great success! This week is a four-day week due to the Teacher Inservice on Friday. Please remember that we will still have a reading selection test and a spelling test this week, so they will be on Thursday! Only three more weeks until ITBS testing! Here’s what’s going on this week:
Math: This week we will dive into long division! We will be starting with two- and three-digit dividends, and then moving to four- and five-digit dividends! Keep practicing those multiplication facts–knowing those facts is immensely helpful in long division!
Reading: This week we are reading a mystery called The Case of the Gasping Garbage. We’ll be able to combine science and reading this week with an exciting story! Remember that the selection test is Thursday, February 12th.
Grammar/Writing: This week in grammar we will finish talking about complete and simple subjects and predicates. We are putting it all together to split the whole sentence up! There will be a quiz over complete and simple subjects and predicates on Thursday, February 12th. In writing, we are starting our descriptive paragraphs by creating sensory charts for the places we chose to describe and writing our first drafts! We will be focusing on a topic sentence with supporting details!
Spelling: Our words this week are root words with affixes. We will be learning about how those affixes affect and change the spelling of the root words. With the short week, remember the spelling test will be Thursday, February 12th.
Science: Our Chapter 1 test on weather conditions is today! The rest of the week we will start an exciting chapter on oceans! We will be exploring currents, tides, waves, and the ocean floor! Our Earth’s oceans are a wonderful mystery!
Social Studies: This week we will be learning about writing checks, deposit tickets, and maintaining a checkbook register in preparation for our trip to BizTown. We will also learn about savings accounts and the different types of currency that can be used!
Religion: We are continuing this week to talk about the Ten Commandments: God’s laws for His people. Our study begins with the first three Commandments, through which God teaches us how to love Him!
