A shorter blog this week, but I wanted to get the memo out about a volunteer opportunity coming up in 3F! A letter went home today explaining it, but here is an upload of it in case it did not make its way to you. Please let me know if you would like to come in! The activity will take place on 10-30 from 1:30-completion.
This week in Writer's Workshop, we learned how to revise and edit our writing with blue and red pens. We also learned how to provide feedback to a partner during the revising and editing stages. In grammar we learned about declarative sentences. The students also completed their first independent narrative! It was fantastic to see so many students incorporating all of the previously taught skills into their writing (types of leads, show not tell, dialogue, etc).
In Math, we are continuing Chapter 3, subtracting with and without regrouping (borrowing) in 3 and 4 digit numbers. The kids are getting the hang of it! Once we finish up this chapter, we will be moving on to multiplication. It is never to early to start practicing the facts at home. Xtramath is a great resource to practice. As students master addition and subtraction facts, it advances them on to multiplication.
Reader's Workshop focused on story elements, specifically setting and plot this week.
In Science, we gathered earth materials and tested each object to see if it repelled water or absorbed water. The students loved testing their predictions.

Have a great weekend!
