Mrs. Bowles's Class News

week of September 15th-19th

Hi! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Thank you for helping your child prepare for the theme test on Friday. Our overall results were wonderful! I am so proud of the children! We will begin our fall garden tomorrow with help from the CHS Ag class as well as Susan Harvin. We are excited to see what we will be planting! Our week is as follows:

Reading: Our story is "The Babe and I". The focus skill of the week is fact and opinion. We are also learning about synonyms, antonyms, simple and compound sentences. The students are taking a vocabulary quiz on Thursday. Please help your child review their vocabulary and spelling words weekly. In your child's portfolio, you will find your child's vocabulary and spelling words, as well as a matching vocabulary game. Please work on matching the words with your child. We will have a test Friday over Lesson 6 which will include all grammar, spelling, vocabulary, and comprehension.

Math: We are finishing Chapter 2 Addition tomorrow and will have a Chapter 2 test on Wednesday. After testing, we will begin Chapter 3 subtraction. This unit mimics Chapter 2, except for it covers subtraction and not addition.

Social Studies: We have been learning the 5 major rivers and two mountain ranges in the United States. We have a Chapter 3 test on Wednesday that will cover this standard. Please help your child review by studying chapter 3 and the study guides that will come home tomorrow. We will be concentrating on Ancient Greece for the remainder of the week.

Have a great week and please let me know if you have any questions. Go tigers!
