Week of Oct. 17-21

Here’s our week at a glance:

Due to early release, we have limited time in the classroom this week.
Reading:  We are continuing our extended text of Wonder.  The kids love it and most of them are also reading it on the side.  When we read it as a class, we discuss different elements of the story- character analysis, main ideas, cause/effect.  
Math: This week we are adding and subtracting decimals.  Students will have a graded assignment on these skills on Friday. 
Socials Studies: We are finishing the Civil War.  The students have trading card due tomorrow.  We’ve been working on them in class for about 1 ½ weeks.  Our Civil War quiz will be on Monday.
Science: We switched Monday with Mrs. CT and they’ll see her again on Friday.  I believe they have a quiz on Friday…..ask them about it!  Extra credit is also due on Friday at 8:55- everyone should do this!
Spelling:  Our spelling focuses on the “I” before “e” except after “C” rule.  (List and Vocab are attached)

Be sure to read about the Field Trip- blue letter that came home last Friday!  It’s going to be tons of fun!
