A Peek at my Week

Today I am linking up with Mrs. Laffin's Laughings to show a peek at my week! 

{Reading} This week we will  begin our novel study on Forty Acres and Maybe a Mule. I planned a 12 day unit on this and am SO excited for it! It's such a great book and goes along with our Reconstruction unit perfectly. Students will write chapter summaries in their journal that I've made. They will also participate in literature circles.  Cannot wait!  We will also work on our weekly vocabulary.

{Math} We will begin our unit on place value this week. Our focus is on decimal place value through the thousandths.  We will do several hands-on activities with place value. Students will have materials for their interactive notebook.

{Social Studies} This week we will begin our unit on Westward Expansion.  We will focus on the reasons people moved west and the physical features of the terrain, specifically the Great Plains.  

{Science} Our focus this week will be on balanced and unbalanced forces.

  2. Sound like a busy week. I love learning about history. If I did not teach elementary I would teach Science or History. Thanks for sharing.
