Mrs. Laffin's Laughings to share what we are up to this week! This is our last week before Spring Break, so I am trying to wrap some things up before the kids are gone for a week. Many of the things I am sharing today are a part of the Spring Cleaning Sale, so grab them up while they are marked down if you are interested! :o)
In reading and writing this week, we are are researching Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. These three women are actually a part of our Social Studies Standards, but with all that we teach, it's not possible to get everything covered if we don't integrate.
We will also read Henry's Freedom Box in reading for some vocabulary activities, using text evidence, and of course, to learn more about the Underground Railroad for Harriet Tubman.
Joanne's (Head Over Heels for Teaching) unit:
mentor sentence for the week comes from, and that will be included in the NEW Mentor Sentence Unit coming out NEXT WEEK!!! :o) Wahoo! I can't wait to reveal it!
During Social Studies time, we will continue moving west! Last week, we learned about Lewis and Clark:
During math, we will be working on fractions on line plots. This is a great way to review operations with fractions, and it's also one of the standards for 4th grade. We will use Holly's (Fourth Grade Flipper) fabulous unit:
We have been reading The One and Only Ivan for our read-aloud at the end of the day.
Nick's (Sweet Rhyme and Pure Reason) amazing unit:
Go link up with Mrs. Laffin's Laughings and tell about your week!
I'll be here counting down my five days left of work before nine days of rest and relaxation!
