WHAT HAVE WE BEEN UP TO?

It’s been a week of beginnings… This week in math we began working in Unit 3 which focuses on addition and subtraction of whole numbers and decimals. We have focused on place value and equalities and inequalities in decimal numbers. This week we began working on our new Unit of Inquiry, titled Civil Struggles. We have already had some very interesting class discussions about concepts including “struggles”, “conflict”, and “perspectives”. We discussed the women’s suffrage movement. Did you know that November 2 nd was the 90 th anniversary of women voting in America? We also worked with our Social Studies curriculum to learn about the causes of the Civil War. Next week, we will find out more about what happened during the Civil War. We also began a new language arts rotation block in which we work on spelling, journaling, DEAR, and a book club assignment. Overall, students are doing a great job of completing their Book Club work on time. Each group is reading a book about some type of civil struggle. Ask your son or daughter about the book they are reading with their group. There are also times where they meet with me or Mrs. DeSmet to go over important reading skills and strategies. Our spelling list this week focused on words with the /oo/ sound.

Have a great weekend! Don’t forget to turn back your clocks on Sunday!!
