This Week in 1B

This week we will continue to learn about the Holy Spirit, and the
special gifts that come from the Spirit. We prepare for the celebration of Pentacost.


In E.L.A. this week, we will continue Unit 5 Lesson 25. The Essential Question will be: "What can you learn from someone from another country?" Our whole group anchor text this week will be the realistic fiction story: "The New Friend".  The paired informational text will be "Symbols of Our Country". We will focus especially on characters, and analyze what they say and do, and how they feel.
          Our phonics lessons this week will focus on the vowel digraphs ou, and ow. Our spelling words contain these two vowel digraphs. Students will be assessed on these words on Friday, June 2nd. This unit will continue through next week. There will be an ELA and Spelling next Friday, June 2nd. No tests this week.
           In grammar lessons, students will revisit contractions. 

 In Math this week we will complete
Unit 11-"Three Dimensional Shapes". In this chapter students have been introduced to different types of 3D shapes: cones, cylinders, cubes, rectangular prisms, and spheres. This week students will be assessed on these concepts on Thursday, June 1st.
