Our Week in Review

This week we focused on the -ock, -op, -ot families, /sh/ and mean -e in Letterland. We studied the story elements of character and setting in reading. We began Literacy and Math centers. In Math, we learned about fact families and ways to make ten. We also did several rock experiments. The students were great geologists!

Looking Ahead

Next week, we will conclude our unit on rocks and soil. We will also begin take home reading folders. Students return their books when they are ready to read them to me independently. It does not have to be returned daily. In math, we will begin missing addends. It is also Book Fair week along with the 3rd grade popcorn sales. Extended book fair night is Tuesday along with Reading/Technology night. Our class visits the book fair on Thursday as well as go to the Popcorn and Apple Juice sale. Students may visit either before Thursday with parents' permission. Popcorn and apple juice are fifty cents each.
