Just another CUIP Schools weblog site

Week of December 18th!

The time is flying! I can not believe that we are already at the last week of the 2017 school year.  This Friday we will be performing in the winter assembly at 9:15 in the auditorium.  Kids will be singing and signing Feliz Navidad.  We are asking that kids come dressed in green, red, white and/or blue with a dark color skirt or pant.

This week…

Reading Workshop– we are moving right on through with our informational reading unit.  We have been talking about speaking the ‘lingo’ of our books and working deeply into our main idea and details.  We also are practicing talking like experts when we are finished reading with our partners.  Please ask your kids at home to teach you something they learned in their nonfiction books!

Writing Workshop– we will be publishing our informational books this week.  Last week we learned about topic sentences, using comparisons, writing introductions to hook our reader in and conclusions.  We will apply what we have learned with text features in independent reading of informational books to the informational books we are writing.

Science– we have wrapped our unit on Land and Water and will be working on some fun STEM winter science activities before break.  We will begin solids and liquids when we get back!

Social Studies– Last week we learned about northwest Native American tribes and this week we will wrap up our unit by studying the southwest!

Math- This week we will be covering 4.7, 4.8, 4.9, and 4.10 and having a cumulative test for units 1-4 on Thursday.  If you know your child will not be here Thursday or Friday please let me know and I will have them take it on Wednesday.
