We really enjoyed the Wonderwheels BMX assembly today. Check it out below!
Multiplication Facts: Please be sure your child is practicing their multiplication facts at least 3 times a week. The difficulty of our math continues to increase and can be a much bigger challenge for those who do not yet know their multiplication facts.
**Scholastic Book orders: Just a reminder that you can always go online to scholastic.com/readingclub and check out the new books they have for your child! There are often great deals and more books are offered than the ones displayed in the catalog. Our classroom code is LB8YK. I will be submitting our January order on Monday, January 26!
Star of the Week:
What Are We Up To In Room 115?
We will also begin our book clubs! Each group has chosen their books so we will begin to plan what good conversations will look like and how they will prepare to talk about their books. Students will learn the value of shared reading and discussion with a small group about a book they are all reading.
Students will be finishing their persuasive writing and publishing that this week as well.
Word Work--NEW DESIGN
We will begin our next round of words on a 2 week rotation again. This time students will be given words that begin with the prefixes dis-, en-, and inter-. The assessment for these words will be on Friday, January 30.
