A New Year

D.W. read a great book to the class on Friday: I Take Care of my Dog!  This is a wordless picture book for which  he wrote the story!  GREAT reading and writing, D.W.

As soon as all the permission slips are in, I will be able to post more pictures.  Please return them Monday if you haven't done so already.  The blog is wonderful way to keep informed as well as post pictures of our students at work.

Happy Reading!

Bringing us up to date

Pictures to come....

We finished our biographies and I have videotaped several.  I will post those as soon as I can.  We finished working on persuasive writing by writing about which Monarch book was our favorite and of course, why.  We are now working on determining importance in Non Fiction, taking notes, and paraphrasing in our words.  This is in preparation for our unit on expository writing.

We have been learning about Traditional Literature:  folktales, fairy tales, fables, and myths.  We have learned the characteristics of each and then will be comparing and contrasting features.

In math we finished up learning about fractions and are now in our measurement unit.

More to to come....

A Week in Pictures!



Our Daily Readers!

During Math Workshop, we learned about measurement, graphing, and data analysis.  We measured in inches and centimeters, our arm spans and standing jumps.  We created a line plot of our arm spans, and bar graphs of our jumps.  We determined the range, median, and mode of each.

 In readers' workshop we learned about cause and effect and how characters react.  During writers' workshop we are writing persuasive brochures.

This week we will celebrate Valentine's Day.  A list of students names went home on Thursday.  Please send in a valentine addressed to each student so that at our party each child will receive a valentine.

End of January

We heard from some great readers: Victor, Diana, Lily, Stacy, and Ian.

 Josh's stepdad was a mystery reader!

And we learned about this African drum that Caitlyn's dad sent all the way from Africa.  Fun!

We finished our biographies and we are learning about persuasive argument.  We continue to learn about character traits and how characters change over time.  We are working now on cause and effect.

We began unit 7 in math.  We will be learning about measurement.
