The students worked so very hard this week! I am so proud of their effort and hard work on their MAPS Math Test this week. All the students crushed it and showed SO MUCH GROWTH! Thank you for your continued support at home with your child. Please continue to read below to see what students have learned and will be learning next week.
This Week in Room 12
In Reading, students reviewed comprehension skills in both fiction and non-fiction genres. The students read interesting stories called “A Ghost Town in Dahlonega” and “Batter Up Next Time”. I am very proud of the students and their ability to remember to highlight evidence and eliminate incorrect answer choices. Also, the class continues to do a great job stopping and jotting to help identify the main idea of paragraphs.
In Math, students took their MAPS Math Spring Test. Also, students reviewed how to order, compare, add & subtract decimals, and write decimals & decimals from pictures. Our class also reviewed how to order, round, compare, add, and subtract fractions, too. The students are continuing to review how to solve math word problems. You Tube videos are ready to view to help practice and solve math problems.
In Writing, students continued to work on their April calendar writing. Each student was given a choice on which writing prompt to choose. Then students worked on a circle map, flow map and a rough draft. Students were able to edit and proofread their writing when typing their final copy in Google Docs. With each week that passes, these students continue to better their writing skills.
In VA Studies, our students finished up our VS 10 Unit. Students did a wonderful job completing a government brain dump about the legislative, executive, and judicial branches. Also, students completed a VA region sort of land features, locations, language groups, products and industries. Students will test the unit on Friday. Here is the VS-10 Study Guide to review and study.
Next week in Room 12
In Reading, students will continue to review finding the main idea & details of fiction and non-fictional texts and passages. We will continue to practice reading to understand and answering comprehension questions to build our stamina.
In Math, students will review more with solving word problems that involve addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Our class will also practice how to reduce a fraction, find equivalent fractions, and order fractions. There will be lots of SOL review happening in our classroom to prepare the students to finish out strong.
In Writing, students will continue to work on their April Calendar Writing and on reader’s response task cards to review reading strategies in class. Also, students will continue to make responses to their guided reading books.
