Curriculum Update November 28-December 2
I hope that everyone has a relaxing Thanksgiving break with family and friends.  Here is our curriculum update for the week.
enVision Math
We will continue our domain of two-dimensional shapes and their attributes.  This week we will focus on quadrilaterals, combining and separating shapes, making new shapes, solving a simpler problem with problem solving, and making and testing generalizations.

Rigby Reading
We will skip to Theme 16 where we will focus on recycle and renew. This will coincide with what we will be studying in Social Studies.  The comprehension strategy is determining importance: purpose for reading.  We will also work on decoding and word-analysis, along with fix-up strategies.

SpellingThe Rigby Spelling list will focus on consonant doubling and syllables.  The Rigby words are can, cook, find, your, bragger, dimmed, splitting, tripped, and transferred.  The extension list is phobia, which means fear of.  The extension words are ailurophobia, arachnophobia, acrophobia, graphophobia, hemophobia, hydrophobia, ornithophobia, photophobia, xenophobia, and zoophobia. 

We will begin a unit on recycling and pollution.
