-Mrs. Coverick’s Class News for the week of September 22nd:

Reading:
-Students will be exploring a new reading series with me that I am piloting for the next two weeks. We are very excited about this.
-Skills we will be working on for the next couple of weeks are short vowels a and i, fluency, subjects and predicates, alphabetical order, sequence of events, author’s word choice, inferring, predicting, and writing narrative sentences that tell a true story.
-Two stories we will be reading throughout the next two weeks are “Henry and Mudge, The First Book” which is a Realistic Fiction story, and “All in the Family”, an informational Text.
-Vocabulary words are curly, straight, floppy, drooled, weighed, stood, collars, row
-Students will be reading different leveled Readers’ Theater Scripts with their peers. If time allows, we may have some or all groups present their “play” to the class.
-Students will continue to practice finding books they are interested in and that are at their level in our classroom library. They will keep them in their book boxes and read them during silent reading or when they are finished with their work. If they have a book from home that they want to keep in their book box, they can bring it to school and bring it back home when they finish it.
-This week in Library, students will be checking out books that are at their reading level. I have some parent volunteers coming in to help me with this as it takes some getting used to. Once they check out two AR books at their level, they will read each book at home 3 or 4 times to prepare for the AR test that is the following Friday. These tests will be graded and the highest one of the two will be recorded in the grade-book. This will be happening most weeks during the school year. There are some weeks that we may not have as much access to the computer lab or we may be busy with other things. You can help your child by making sure they read their books, discuss the books with them,, and make SURE THEY RETURN THEIR BOOKS TO SCHOOL EACH FRIDAY. The AR quizzes are Open Book. That means they can look in the book if they are not sure of the answer. If they leave their books at home they will still have to take the quizzes, but without the help of the books.

Spelling:
- cried, hurried, replied, fried, tried, worried, carried, copied, married, studied, remarked, finished, alone, river, think
-Sentences due Thursday.
-Test is Friday.

Writing/ Language:
-This week we will continue to write our opinion pieces about Kate Shelly’s Bravery. We did not have time this past week to complete it.
-DOL: Students will work on correcting sentences that have mistakes in them.
Social Studies: Pilgrims and Native Americans as we start to listen to our musical music and read books about the first Thanksgiving, etc.

Science: We will be studying Animals and Plants for a while.

Math: Students will continue with chapter one. We are going to be working on Number and operations in base ten. We will be practicing different ways/ names for numbers. We will also be working on word problems/ problem solving using the skills we have been learning. Students will be working with a hundreds chart and finding patterns and ways to help them skip count. Finally, we will continue to work on math facts with Mastering Math Facts and Flashcard games as time allows.
