This week we will read the story Dot and Jabber. Our high-frequency words (on green paper) for the stories are: among, another, instead, and none.Practice using these words in sentences correctly. We will learn about the word patterns:oo. Think of words with the -oo sound as in book as well as words with the -oo sound as in zoo. Students will be asked to compare and contrast the different way seeds are carried, inflected endings(-s, -ed, or -ing), and pronouns. Our reading and spelling test will be on Wednesday,May 21st. Practice your high-frequency words in sentences, and review the story events.
Spelling Words for Dot and Jabber
We will continue to work in chapter 4 "Organize and Use Data" this week in our lessons. There will be a chapter 4 test the week of Nov. 11-15. Know these vocabulary terms: bar graph, data, picture graph, survey, and tally chart. Start to memorize your addition and subtraction facts to help with rocket math. Flashcards are a fun way to practice at home. You should practice both + and - facts. (Take the easy facts out of your group that you are studying). Any of the following websites would be both enjoyable and fun!)
