What's New This Week?

Language Arts

Our main story selection this week is titled Jellies, and this is an informational text. In Lesson 10 our Essential Question is “How do you know if something is a fact or an opinion?” Target skills are fact & opinion, base words and suffixes -er, -est, and contractions.

In writing we will continue learning how to write to inform with instructions by writing a "How To" paper independently.

We will finish topic 5 on MONEY this week. Money can be challenging. It is most helpful to practice counting money in everyday experiences, such as paying for something at a store.

** If your child has any difficulty with the homework, it would be helpful to go on the Pearson website for review of the lesson. Once logged in, go to the upper right “TO DO” and your child can go through the exact lesson from the day. The username and password can be found in your child's homework book.


Keep up with the great work on the First in Math website. This is a wonderful activity to help strengthen your child's math skills on different levels. www.firstinmath.com

Please continue to send in Box Tops. Sheets will be coming home to help collect. The collection sheets have 25 boxes on them for you to glue or tape your Box Tops. Can you be a Box Top Detective and find all of them in your house? They are on everything from canned goods to tissue boxes, granola bars to frozen peas. Each Box Top is worth 10 cents for our school. Individually, it doesn't sound like a lot but they add up quickly!

Thanks for your support!


Please remember to pack a healthy snack for your child. They work hard so they are hungry!
