Friday, November 13, 2015 A Week in Review

The PTO Fall Labels contest will end on Monday, November 30. Please continue to collect the following:

Campbell's labels for education

Tyson project A+

Coke rewards

Labels should be returned to school in an envelope or plastic bag with the teachers name on it so we can get credit for the labels. If we win at our grade level, we get a PIZZA PARTY!

Of course, we are always collecting box tops too!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Here is our week in review:

Spelling/Word Work: *I can determine which to, too, or two to use in a sentence. *I can brainstorm other homophones and determine their meaning.

Reading: *I can use context clues in a sentence or in my reading to determine the meaning of a word. *I can use the comprehension strategy called asking questions to improve my comprehension. (Good readers ask questions before they read, during reading, and after they read) We will continue to work on this strategy next week as well

Writing: * I can state my opinion about a character or a book, using the linking word because and support my opinion with examples or proof from the book.

Science/Social Studies: *I can think about what it would be like to only use items that come from the earth like the Native Americans. *I can explain why some tribes used teepees as their homes. *I can appreciate that the Native American people are a spiritual people. *I can create art like the Native American people.

Math:* I can use a calculator as a mathematical tool. *I can use combinations that I know to add two or more numbers. *I can compare a number to 20 to find the difference. *I can relate doubles and near doubles.

Items for next Week-

Please keep in mind that our recess is at 10:10am. It is often still very chilly in the mornings! Please be sure as the temperature changes, your child has a jacket/coat at school every day. Thank you! We do go out even when it's chilly; the kids need to move their bodies and get some fresh air!
