This week we are reading Raising a Raisin. It is an informational text all about raisins. As we read students will focus on drawing conclusions from the text. A conclusion is a decision or an opinion that makes sense based on the facts and ideas you have read. As students read our fluency story Antarctica, try to ask them to draw conclusions from what they have read.
area: a space used for a special purpose
artificial: made by humans, not by nature
grapevine: a woody vine on which grapes grow
preservative: a substance used to keep food from spoiling
proof: anything that can be used to show that something is true or real
raise: to lift
raisin: a dried grape
Our math this week is pages 35 and 36. 35 will help them review writing 4 digit numbers, and page 36 will help them review multiplying by 5's.
And like always our spelling words are on the homework sheet.
Important Dates: Dec. 7th is our 3rd grade concert from 6:30-7:30. More information on that will be coming from our music teacher.
