We are starting all subjects this week. In Language Arts, we will have spelling, vocabulary, and grammar. We will even have our first comprehension test on Friday. In Math, we begin Unit 1: Place Value, this unit should be more of a review of previously taught concepts. If you need help or have questions, don't hesitate to email me. We will have our first Science Lesson in our Rock Cycle unit, as well as a first lesson in Social Studies on map reading skills. Friday will be our first Arts lesson in Music with Mr. Gillstrap.
You will also notice that homework will be more than last week. Students will be practicing skills learned in class. I will go over how to do the Language Arts portion each day in class. Students will also be getting their first homework project. They will be getting instructions, but will have 2 weeks to work on researching our state symbols. Work must be written in their own words.
Finally, I want to apologize for confusion on the 3 inch binder. It was a typo that should have said 1 inch. If you already bought a 3 inch, we can still work with it, the biggest issue was that it needed to be bigger than 1/2 inch. If you want to get a new one, that is fine, but know that it is okay if you choose not to.
