5 days until Thanksgiving vacation! I am so blessed that my district gives us an entire week for vacation. When we were year round we had a long weekend, but nothing beats an entire week!! I love teaching - I had to explain it to my own son the other day - but there is something about having a chance to focus on my own family that makes me smile. :)
So, here it is another Sunday to share what's planned in my classroom. Linking up with Mrs. Laffin's Laughings and her Peek at my Week linky party!
This week we are reading a very short story titled "The Milkmaid and her Pail". We will be focusing on cause and effect, as well as idioms. It's the end of the unit, so we will also be spending some time getting ready for our unit test - reviewing vocabulary, practicing comprehension strategies, and spelling patterns. Fun times!
We really should be moving onto long division but instead with the vacation approaching we will continue to review multi digit multiplication. We will be tackling this project from Teaching with a Mountain View instead. I love how the students will be able to see how multi-digit multiplication is used in real life.
This week is a big one for us. We will be finishing up Lemonade War,
and reading How Many Days to America? for our mentor sentence.
Bringing Thanksgiving into the classroom:
I chose 5 of the pages in this packet, copied them half page, and they are stapled into a little packet to tackle this week.
This unit I will be using the math games in my centers, and on Friday we will watch the movie, "Molly's Pilgrim" and complete those activities.
In the afternoons I have ELA center time, so I will be using these fall activities to review key concepts.
Before I sign off for today, wanted to remind you of the Pin It giveaway over on yesterday's post. Have a great day!
