Moffatt's Memo

October 19-23

A Peek at Next Week

Reading - Readers will work on sequencing this week, as well as cause and effect. Students will sequence events in books we read and work together to determine why an event happened, along with the effect of an important event. Being proficient in these skills will help with story mapping and determining plot structure.

Writing - Writers will develop a story outside of their notebook and work through the publishing process. They will produce a piece that is spread out over several pages, accompanied by an illustration on each page. It will be considered a picture book.

Math - We finish fractions this week by comparing them, those with like and unlike numerators, and those with like and unlike denominators. We will spend several days focusing on fractions through concentrated problem solving. We problem solve EVERY DAY, but I will have students work together to think through, discuss, and complete many problem solving situations this week.

Science - Gravity and magnetism

Social Studies - Physical features of communities

REPORT CARDS will go home on Friday, October 23rd!

Picture day

School picture day is Tuesday, October 20th. Individual order forms were sent home already. Pictures must be paid for in advance. EVERY STUDENT will have their picture made, even if photos aren't purchased, for the yearbook.

West Bay Common School

Our fall field trip is scheduled for Thursday, October 22nd. We will spend the day visiting a one room schoolhouse and learning all about how a child in the 1860s spent their school day. Please send your child with a lunch. I sent home lunch notes on Thursday, to make sure I know how many lunches to order from the cafeteria. Please return that note with your child if you haven't already done so.

No parent chaperones will be taken on this field trip. There is not enough space and it is a teacher led experience. In the spring, we will go on a field trip to the Museum of Fine Arts, and parent chaperones are invited to attend.

Fundraiser Pick-Up, Tuesday, October 20th

Our PTA cookie dough fundraiser pick-up will take place on Tuesday, October 20th from 2-6 pm in the cafeteria. If you are unable to pick up the cookie dough on this day, please arrange for someone to pick up the items on your behalf; many of you have purchased cold items, and they are not able to be stored overnight.
