A Peek at Our Week...


+ We had our first round of voting for the BT Road to the Final Four.  Please continue to read the books at home or watch the videos, as we will be voting for the next round next week!


+ We have been working hard on planning our up-cycling project! Thank you to everyone who has donated supplies for us to use! Next week we are going to try to start building our designs.


+ Report Cards will be available for you to see on Wednesday the 28th.  





+ We started our new unit on Poetry.  We have read many different types of poems.   Some poems make us laugh, some poems teach us information, and some poems paint pictures in our minds.  After reading a poem, we like to talk about what the poem was about and how the author wrote the poem.  Sometimes, poems are hard to understand.




+ We had so much fun reading our animal reports to you! Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to join us! We also started our new unit on writing Poetry reviews.  We wrote a class review for the poem, Drip Drop.  We wrote a summary about the poem, our opinion about the poem, a connection we had to the poem, and who we would recommend reads the poem.  Next week, we will start writing our own reviews.




+ We took our Chapter 6 test on Friday.  Next week, we will start Chapter 7 – Comparing Numbers.  Please continue to practice addition and subtraction facts at home.
