So tomorrow is supposed to be an inservice day. One of our few days to work in our classroom for the year and it might snow. Where I live, if it snows, the entire city shuts down. The roads here are extremely curvy and hilly so it is almost impossible to drive if it is snowy. Plus we usually get ice underneath the snow which makes it even worse. So, if it snows and we don't have an inservice day to get ready for the kids, I'm in trouble. I have nothing ready and my room is a mess. I was looking forward to using the day to clean up all my Christmas stuff.
So these plans are for a week where it doesn't snow. I can't decide if I want it to snow or not. I really want an inservice day but I really love snow days too. Hmm..dilemma.
This week, our main comprehension skill is drawing conclusions. I don't really see how this is any different than making an inference but I'll just go with it. Any ideas of how they are different?
Our math unit is regrouping so we will be reviewing addition and subtraction with regrouping. We will be introducing adjectives this week and practicing using them in our writing. Our unit is animal life cycles (part 1). I plan on teaching more life cycles later on.
For reading, I will be using these books for mini lessons:
For unit, I am reading:
