For math, the class will be using their number racks and creating number lines to help solve story problems. In writing, the class will practice the 5 Steps of Editing, along with organizing short stories. For spelling/phonics, long vowels -ee and -ea, along with -ing endings. In reading, the class will discuss Author's Purpose and Story Structure.

Books are Beautiful!
I'm not sure if you are aware, but the class has been fully-funded for a grant book project I requested! At the end of the summer I signed up for a project through donorschoose.org to assist the classroom with new books to enhance our classroom library and Guided Reading library. As of last week, the project was fully funded by many gracious donors. Please assist by reading and filling out the attached release form. This will assist with meeting the requirements of the class receving these awesome books. I will also send home on Monday (in the red folders) ahard copy of the form. Please return these forms ASAP (thank you)!
Please note 12 PM dismissal Wednesday, please plan accordingly! There will be a sack-lunch form going home Monday that needs to be filled out and returned no later than Tuesday!!!
We will have a meeting this week for those interested in volunteering in the classroom. First of all, THANK YOU for offering!! Let's meet Thursday ( 9/18) during the class' specialist time from 2-2:30. We can discuss schedules and the variety of ways to help out in the classroom!
