Standards Addressed in Lesson:
We are going to dive into our new curriculum this quarter. Please see the attachment for what is being covered as we transition to this new program. We most likely won’t get to everything on the document I have attached because it will take us a few weeks to get into the routine with new materials. Moving forward this page will contain the Social Studies plans for the week as it does below as well as an attachment with an outline of the ELA for the week. Each week we will still have our spelling, vocab, and grammar as before as well as a formative test for the reading skills we have covered during the week. Every third week will be a summative test of the reading skills we have worked on instead of a formative. If you have any questions please reach out and I will be happy to answer them.
