Reading and Writing

Make writing a regular part of your child's life. Leave notes to your child to discover (telling how well he/she has done or telling where an afternoon snack is, etc.). In the note, you might suggest he/she writes back to you as well. Have your child write invitations to have family members come over for special events (birthdays and other holidays) or to write "thank you" notes for gifts received. Any extra practice at writing benefits your child. December offers many opportunities for your child to write!

Book Club is Thursday, December 11. Each student wanting to participate in the book club needs to read Anna, Grandpa, and the Big Storm by Carla Stevens.

They also continued practice of two digit addition. Subtraction review began this week-learning to subtract 0 from a number. This week, they also discovered attributes of geometric shapes; learning what an angle is. They learned what congruent shapes are too.
