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!

Week of April 17, 2017

Spelling:  Students received their final spelling list today.  It is a cumulative review of previous lessons with the bonus words being words from lessons we haven't covered.  If the student didn't earn an advance or proficient, then they have 3x each, cursive #1-25.  This is different...1-25!!  Test is Friday.

Grammar:  We are discussing subject and object pronouns, demonstrative and reflexive pronouns. We completed workbook pages 261 and 268 today.  Test is Thursday.  The students will list the 4 types and the pronouns that follow each type, as well as identify the different types of pronouns in the sentences.

Reading:  Review page 269 in the workbook.  We will be having a sequence assessment on Friday. There is nothing to study, just be sure you know your time order words and can follow directions.
