Quick overview of what are we learning
Fundations: We will start unit 7 but I will not be sending home Fundations homework over the break.
Writing: How to build a snowman, how to decorate a cookie, how to make a gingerbread man/ woman.
Daily 5: We are looking at some holiday stories and working very hard in fluency, comprehension, writing, spelling and reading.
Math: Addition word problems and addition strategies
Work packet over break
New homework assignment
The format of the DORF is often the most difficult part. Students often get overwhelmed by the amount of words on one page and are unable to read the text. Therefore, I want to get them used to this format now so that they are prepared when the assessment window opens. We will be practicing in class, but I also want them to begin practicing at home.
Another area that is always difficult for this age group is responding to comprehension questions through writing. We will begin some written comprehension work to compliment our reading homework. This will begin next week.

Any holiday tradition you have that you could share with the whole class. This could include a special dish your child loves, a treat, a craft or song.
