Mrs. Bridgen’s Classroom
of May 13th
**PLEASE SEE YOUR CHILD'S SPECIFIC READING TEACHER'S WEBSITE FOR THEIR SPELLING/READING/WRITING INFORMATION.
Mrs. Bridgen's Morning Reading Class ONLY:
**We will not be having reading groups
Thursday or Friday due to the Cancer Awareness walk on Thursday and our field
trip on Friday. Our spelling test will
be taken Friday afternoon.
This week, our reading focus will be on
finding evidence or proof. Good readers
are always thinking about what it is they are reading. I will be constantly asking them questions
after reading. They must be able to
answer and find support for their answers within the story.
Practice with your child at home while
reading! After each page ask them
something about what they have just read and have them show you the sentence
where they found their “proof.”
spelling skills for this week are spl- and –ung word families.
the sentences they may see the words: splinter, stung, flung, and splatter
(Hint, Hint J)
will be continuing the creation of our autobiography. We are starting our final copies!
are continuing cursive capital letters. Once completed we will practice reading and
writing cursive through practice of full sentences.
Facts (same level of facts, different order).
Friday assessment showed many areas our class needs continued practice in. I used this assessment to create our center
groups by those that need help with a similar skill, and will also focus more
of our whole group time in three digit subtraction with regrouping. I will not use this test as a grade, but
please help your child in the areas marked on the assessment.
this week: Making Change, Elapsed Time, Three Digit + & -, Finding
Missing Parts, Estimating Sums and Differences, Writing #’s to 1,000, Expanded
Form, and Comparing and Ordering Numbers.
