Spelling: Depending on your list based on the Jan Richardson Spelling Assessment, students this week are following rules…

Group A - /ll/.../ff/.../ss/...blends   

Group B - ch, ph, th, sh, wh, tch blends

Group C - long /a/...

Grammar: We will also be practicing apostrophes in contractions.

Math: Topic 3 (and 4) are breaks from multiplication, we are NOT LETTING OFF that pedal though. Topic 3 is about place values and manipulating numbers to show the same value (ie. 423 is 42 tens and 3 ones).

Don’t ask me why, I don’t know why the book is ordered that way, I do know that Topic 5 is Multiplication by one and two digit, so the facts are not going away!  

Writing: We will continue with Narrative writing and typing. It is crucial to be practicing keyboarding at home, as students can often write more than type at this stage.

Besides having three written pieces of their own to finish and write, students are co-op writing an informative essay on sympathy, empathy, and attentive listening this week.

Reading: Literacy groups continue with narrative novels and text. We focus on comprehension questions, inferencing, character feelings, word attack skills, and the meaning of unknown words.

One small group I  do during writing independent time, to fit the other four groups into our allotted Literacy Block”.

Who We Are: The IB until this week focuses how civilizations moved for water, mountains (protection), their food sources, or wealth. This is all slowly building up to out play (Which I will write over Fall Break) about the History of Colorado. Which is fourth grade content and state assessing.
