We had a great first week in Room 227. No problems getting to electives and students are quickly racking up the awesome cards towards our first class reward. I can tell this year will be great! We spent a good bit of time this week on procedures, setting up class rules and expectations and get to know you activities. We also began taking math baselines and reviewing parts of speech and writing conventions. We started reading Marsh Island and had a cooking lesson activity. On Friday we celebrated our summer birthdays with Coach Lack’s class.
Next week we will continue and complete our novel study. We are increasing reading comprehension and thinking skills through higher level thinking and analytical questions following each day’s readings. We will continue to learn and review parts of speech and also review writing conventions. We will complete Brigance baseline assessments in math and reading and start our math center rotations to include 1:1 teacher work, math activity and individualized independent practice. For social studies we will talk about communities and for science we will review the scientific process and lab safety.
Have a great weekend!
