Peek at My Week!

I just came back from school to make some copies for the week and do some grading.

I finished planning just a few minutes ago, so I'm linking up with Mrs. Laffin!


In math we are continuing to learn about fractions. So far we have compared fractions with the same numerator and same denominator...this week we will be using benchmarks and number lines. We'll be reviewing a bit at the end of the week using this awesome bundle!

In reading we are reading a nonfiction text from our basal called Rocking and Rolling. It's about volcanoes! I'm hoping the students will be interested in this selection! In small groups I will be using a passage from 247 Teacher's April Close Reading packet! I LOVE THIS PACK!

In science we are wrapping up our last chapter in our roles of living things unit...next up and last..the solar system! And our textbook still lists Pluto as a planet...we need new curriculum! Argh!
In social studies, we finished our unit on how geography affects communities and our last unit will be on the government. My students presented their topics and posters last week and they did a great job! I'm really proud of the growth in their speaking skills!
In language we are finishing our Parts of Speech flipbooks and will do some review with Common Core Bellringers.

Click on any of the products I mentioned to check them out on TpT.

This week I will also be meeting with my 8 students who turned in all of their homework in March to see what they would like to do to celebrate...pizza, Subway, ice cream, etc. I've seen a big increase students turning in homework since I started the Homework Club!

I hope you have a great week! :)

  1. Our textbook still calls Pluto a planet, too! (That led to a good lesson about checking the copyright date when we find something that doesn't agree with what we know.) :)

    Thanks for linking up & have a great week!

  2. I have different copyright dates for our science book some say Pluto is a planet and some don't. It's definitely time for an update! I love the idea of homework club! I am struggling at getting students to complete ALL of their homework and this sounds like a great motivator.
