Notes

  • We will have our class Winter party next Thursday, December 17, beginning at 3:10. Please contact our room parent, Kim Isaacson, for information or if you would like to help: ksisaacson01@gmail.com
  • We will not have a spelling test or reading test next week. It will be a review week.

Reading/Writing

We read A Look at Breakfast and From Cows to You this week. We also read other stories where we practiced the skills of oo, u, inflectional endings, and contractions with not.


We have been working on the trait of word choice in writing. We have also been working on opinion and persuasive writing pieces. We wrote letters to our parents about something we want for the holidays. We hope we persuade you to buy it!


Your child can work on the Raz-Kids website at anytime for more practice on reading comprehension. If you think your child's level is too easy let me know and I can increase the difficulty. The teacher username is: smitchellav

No spelling words next week!

Math

We learned about place value, and greater than/less than. Next week we will work on 2 math projects: geometric patterns and ad wizards.

Let me know if you would like me to send home flashcards for chomputation. Here is a great link to practice timed facts:
