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!

Students have been super busy collecting money for the Boosterthon.  As of this morning, my homeroom had $25/lap raised.  We are very close to the $30 level as a class, which is a classroom surprise snack provided by me.  If the school raises $20,000, the principals will dress as queens and get pied in the face.  Let's keep making those donations!

Tomorrow is the Fun Run.  Students are encouraged to wear sweatpants and the field trip shirt.  If a student doesn't dress for the Fun Run, they must be in dress code school approved clothes.  NO JEANS!  The Fun Run will take place in the afternoon for 4th grade.
