Welcome to 2019! I must start off by saying that I am unable to truly express my gratitude for your amazing generosity before the break! The gift card wreath was spectacular and the students’ cards nearly brought me to tears. THANK YOU!
NEW SPECIALS SCHEDULE: As we are entering a new semester we will be changing our specials schedule. Here is our new schedule:
Math: We will begin the semester by reviewing what we have learned already in math in regards to fractions. We will then jump into multiplying fractions by a whole number and solving multi-step word problems involving fractions. We will have our second fraction assessment on Thursday January 24, 2019.
Reading: We will be studying nonfiction, including how information is presented visually, orally, and quantitatively, explaining how authors use reasons and evidence.
Writing: In writing we will be starting our unit on writing research papers. In this unit students will learn how to research a topic and then use that information to write a research paper.
Spelling: Each week students will have a new spelling rule or skill and one or two “red” words. Red words are words that do not follow a rule and are taught in a very specific way to help students memorize them. A spelling test will be given based on the rule. Therefore, your child will not have a specific list of words to study but rather need to show knowledge of the rule. Students will be working on this skill in class and the rule will be posted to the website.
Science: In science we are finishing up our unit on Meteorology and will be taking our test on Wednesday January 23. We will then move into our unit on Chemistry.
Social Studies: Students are continuing their study of the history and geography of Colorado.
