Mrs. Nayak -- She supported small group and 1x1 support this week with math, reading and writing lessons.  She also checked spelling sentences.

Spelling --  Students are doing well with Greek and Latin roots.  Packets are getting completed on time and students did well on the first quiz. There are no Spelling City activities for this unit.

Grammar --  We are starting new lessons focusing on nouns.  We continue to review capitalization and punctuation.

Reading --  We continue with historical fiction book clubs and reading By the Great Horn Spoon as a class.  We have focused on learning about the time period and how minor characters are important to the story.

Writing --  We are researching the life of a miner and will write an informational piece (problem-solution) about the Life of a Miner.

Math -- We continue to work with fractions and learning about adding and subtracting fractions.  We are also talking about improper fractions and mixed numbers.

Social Studies -- We are now into the Gold Rush.  We will spend the next four or five weeks working on the growth and development of California during the Gold Rush.  We have started our musical as well, "Gold Dust or Bust". Our performance is Monday, May 6th 8:15-9:15.

Science --  We continue with Physical Science.  There was no Science lesson this week.
