Dear Parents and Families,
This will be a very short but fun week. We start off this week with our Diggs lesson on compost. Students will get a chance to see what goes into compost. Then, we have a short assembly in the gym. This is to jump start the Fall Fundraiser and coin drive. Later this week we have our first Art Masterpiece lesson with Mr. Psenka. If you have any questions please let us know.
What we are learning this week:
Writing: This week we will be writing an informational piece about gorillas. Students will have a chance to go through the stages of writing.
Reading: We will be talking about Cause and Effect within a nonfiction text. Students will learn the different key words that help us know this was the author's text structure. Students will also be looking at metaphors within writing and what they mean.
Math: Students will start a study of multiplication and the strategies to multiply. They will also start Xtramath in class for practice and review.
Science: Students will be creating different pitches with different instruments in class.
Social Studies: Students get to read or listen to different Greek myths. We are going to retell these myths to the class.
If you have any questions please email me. Thanks so much and have a great week.
