This week in the Wonders program we will investigate the question, “How does the Earth change?” Students will have the chance to learn more about our planet, including ways we can take care of it! As well, we will begin to study the bossy r spelling pattern; with ur spellings as our focus this week. We will begin to learn about the plot and sequence of a story this week.
In Math this week, we are wrapping up our Unit 5 learning and will take our end of unit assessment right before winter break. We continue to practice applying the addition strategies we have learned so far, mostly through number stories. The kiddos are doing quite well with this skill.
In writing this week, we will wrap up our opinion and persuasive writing. Students will plan and write an independent letter to you! We will launch this exercise with the book, I Wanna Iguana by Karen Orloff and David Catrow. Students will then brainstorm something they want, and write a persuasive letter trying to convince you to get it!
Just a reminder that we will snowshoe tomorrow, Monday February 19th, so please send in appropriate gear. As well, our read-a-thon will be on February 23rd. Any pledge sheets can come in on that date.
