Week of October 31, 2016

Where has October gone?

Reading:  What Jo Did is a fabulous story and teaches a great lesson, never judge a book by its cover. We will begin tomorrow with vocabulary and end next week with the assessment.  In between, continue to study vocabulary.  Read small sections and look for main idea and supporting details to draw inferences.  Also, review story elements: character, setting, events.

Spelling: List 6. Pretest tomorrow, test Friday.  Tuesday's homework (for those that didn't get 100%) is to write the words 3x each (1x cursive, 2x print), Wednesday's homework for everyone is to write the plural and singular form of each word, Thursday's homework is to write a good sentence showing the plural form of the word, test is Friday.

Grammar:  We will be working with proper and common nouns.  Test is Friday.

Social Studies:  Test on Thursday on lessons 1-6.  Students have been told what to expect on the test.Review the worksheets, know what states border PA, know what Great Lake borders PA, know the 5 regions of PA and their definitions, know the compass rose, know the state symbols from lessons 4 and 6, and just review the passages for anything else that may be on there.  You do not have to study the activities.

Have a great week!

Friday the parade will start at 2pm and will find its way to the high school stadium.  Classroom parties will follow.  4th grade has collected $5/student to help defray the cost of snacks.  If you haven't sent yours in, please do so.  Students may also bring in candy/snacks, but remember it must be store bought.

Our spelling test will be Thursday on list 4.  Students took a pre-test yesterday, and have had the list since last Friday.  On the flip side is list 5, so please do not throw it away.
