Volunteers:

I am ready for some volunteers! Please send me an email if you are available to volunteer and/or what day and time works for you. In the past, I have had parents choose to come bi-weekly or every week. I would love help with copying, laminating, and working with small groups of students. I look forward to hearing from you!


Math:

We are continuing our addition and subtraction unit.


Reading:

We will continue with comprehension strategies. We will be reviewing Asking Questions and starting to discuss Visualizing.


Please make sure your child is reading at least 20 minutes every night.


Writing:

Our 6 + 1 Traits of Writing unit is completed. We will start our Constructed Response Unit. The students will learn how to respond to text and cite evidence.


Science:

We are learning about Rocks and Minerals. We are starting our next experiment on Monday! We will be making a mineral garden.

Learning with the iPad

Students were introduced to Padlet this week. We started playing with it by creating a Book Ideas page. They can add to the page all year and refer back to it when they want a new book to read. We talked about how to be a good Digital Citizen while posting ideas. Also, we read an article about Galileo and practiced using question words to ask questions about what we read. They did a great job! : )
