Weekly Newsletter for 2/28/14

Dear Room 4 Families,

Our Room 4 students worked hard this week! We have been working on creating words with our Mandarin characters, going through the writing process (rough draft, revising, editing, and publishing) with stories that we wrote from our writing journals, and focusing on our assessments for the second trimester, which ends next Friday.

Please remember to turn in your completed field trip permission forms!

English Language Arts

Working on: oi/oo spelling blends, reality/fantasy, revising/editing/and publishing our writing.

We have been taking a trimester math assessment this week that will run into next week. We will be starting Topic 15 – Place Value on Monday.

Current Textbook Lessons: Shuang Shuang 3.1, Better Chinese Lesson 15
Things we did:

  • Learned how to write our dictation words in stroke order
  • Combined characters to create words
  • Learning about habitats (where do animals live?)
  • Learned and used the vocabulary for prepositions (ie. this/that) and antonyms (ie. big/small)
  • Using flash cards to review and maintain our past dictation words.
  • Practiced our dictation words, different variations of reading aloud, writing, singing songs, searching for our vocabulary words in our text.
