  1. 1. Crossroads Charter Academy Big Rapids, MI November 18, 2013 Mrs. Nawrot’s Classroom News Academics Spelling This Week’s Academics I have modified the 2-5-8 assignment so that it lines up with what we have been learning during our EBLI lessons. Please make sure words are practiced this week!   Reading Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH is at an exciting point! Last week Mrs. Frisby learned about the laboratory at NIMH, where the rats were tested with injections to increase their ability to learn. We learned about using a maze and electric shock as well! I hope to finish the book right after Thanksgiving! Writing This week we will begin a new writing unit. Students will be writing persuasive letters. I am excited for students to share their personalities and their great reasoning strategies! Our unit should last 3 weeks.    Math We will be taking our first fraction test on Thursday! We will be testing fractions of a dollar, fractions of a set, and remaining fractions. There will be a few story problems as well. Social Studies Our economics unit has been going great! We are getting ready for the 4th grade craft/bake sale! That will be on Dec. 3rd. We have worked on shirt designs and have lots of great ideas Care to Join Us?
