Next week we will continue our cultural studies studies on the medieval period with a focus on the properties of sound. This will give us an opportunity to explore medieval music and instruments! Next week's vocabulary list will also highlight properties of sound. All students will need to be able to define these words for an activity on Friday. I will also provide them with a developmentally appropriate list of spelling words. This list should also be reviewed often so they can be prepared for a spelling activity on Friday. Follow-up works will also be assigned for our math, Language, and cultural lessons. All required works are listed on your child's workplan and are due by Friday. If there are any works that your child does not complete by Friday, I will transfer them over to the next workplan for them to complete.
We've been spending some time exploring the writing process and how to properly structure paragraphs and, for some, multi-paragraph essays. We will check our progress on this skill next week by completing a writing task that will require the children to read a text and answer a writing prompt. I look forward to reading the responses and using them to plan upcoming language arts lessons.
