Reminders

  • Please remember to have your child at morning assembly by 7:40am. Morning assembly is a great way to start our day together as a class family.
  • Make sure to check and initial their Panther folder daily for behavior notes and school/community information.
  • Check their blue Homework folder for any assignments. Remember all homework is given Monday and due Thursday.

Reading

As we continue studying characters and their traits, we apply our connections to better understand them. We look at self-to-text, text-to-text, and text-to-others connections.


This week we review fact or opinion. We add this knowledge to our all-about books.

Writing

Students continue their animal "all about" books. We continue organizing and revising our gathered information, using them to help create text and graphic features. We focus on creating a table of contents, glossary, and captions.

Spelling

This week we look at the /oo/ sound as in book. Although students are expected to master these words, applying the phonics rule will aid in their writing and reading.
