Parent Teacher Conferences
Parent/Teacher Conferences this year at TCE will be a little different! We are all conducting Student Led Conferences! These conferences allow your child to be an important part by having them share their accomplishments and help create goals for the year. Teachers will be sending out directions on Wednesday, September 30th for parents to sign up electronically for a conference date by Monday, October 5th. Conferences this year will take place from Monday, October 5th through Wednesday, October 21st. We can’t wait to celebrate your child’s learning with you!

We Are Learning...
Good readers are problem finders and problem solvers. We notice problems in their reading and use a variety of strategies for figuring out tricky words and fixing up meaning!
We are busy launching our personal narratives! We will be writing about small moments in our lives and will add leads to our writing to get our readers hooked. We will also write with emotion to make our stories more interesting!
In math this week, we will wrap up our study of Addition Strategies and begin a new unit studying Subtraction Strategies. In this unit, students will understand multiple strategies for subtraction. Important vocabulary words for this unit include: fact family, inverse operation, and difference.
