Week of January 29th…

Hi 214 Families!  This Thursday will be the last day of quarter 2.  February 3rd is a school improvement day, therefore students will have not have school on Friday.

Thank you to the parents who have brought in snack this past month.  We are in need of snack for February. Any healthy, peanut free food will be appreciated.

What is happening this week…

Math:  We will be working on wrapping up the unit this week.  On Monday we will study the temperature and practice reading thermometers.  Please practice this at home, in addition to counting money.

Reading Workshop: Last week we did a shared reading of Happy Like Soccer and studied literary language, pacing, and context clues.  We will continue this work as well as exploring inference.  Students will receive a new reading log on Monday and are expected to turn in on Friday morning.

Writing Worksop:  We made catapults with spoons, rubber bands, rulers, and tape.  We then tested whether a ping pong or a cotton ball would travel farther.  We wrote up our data and created a lab report following the scientific process. Students enjoyed this and did great job.  We have now wrapped up our nonfiction writing unit and are moving on to opinion writing.

Science:  We are going to continue our investigation of liquids on Monday and then will move onto gases the rest of the week.

Social Studies:  We will begin our celebration of black history month on Thursday.  Students will study famous contributions and achievements made by famous African Americans and will do biography projects.
