The 411 You Need to Know!!!!!
During out ELA block we have been practicing the different activities we will get to do during our guided reading time. This includes, Word Study, Successmaker, MobyMax, Grammer, and writing time! We should be ready to start our Guided Reading groups very soon!
During Social Studies, we talked about the continents, North America, and now we are starting to talk about the different regions in South Carolina. By the end of next week, your child should be able to tell you about each of the different 6 regions! We've even be able to look at the regions on Google Earth.
During Science we started the year off with learning about science saftey skills and science process skills. We are finally ready to move into our first unit! We will be starting with the different landforms and Rocks and Minerals. It will probably take all of the first two nine weeks to cover this information!
During Math, we have been working on place value and adding and subtracting numbers using different strategies like using number lines to add to 100 and drawing pictures to add and subtract.
We are starting Word STudy this week. We will have a Word Study test each Friday. Students need to be able to spell the word correctly and use it correctly in a sentence. This will really prepare them for PASS testing at the end of the school year.
Each child now has an account set up on Edmodo.com. This allows your student to connect with classmates and myself during, and after school hours. Pretty soon, I will begin posting extra information on this about what we are learning in school.
We also have a program called Mobymax. This is a GREAT tool both inside and outside of the classroom. Students are encouraged to log in at home and complete task to reinforce different skills. Please email me on how to log into this at home.
Please let me know if you would like an electronic copy of your child's weekly progress report and the class news letter.. This will help me out greatly, as they are limiting the amount that we can print and copy.
If you have not enrolled in the REMIND101 please text @mslunny to 803-335-1252. It will ask you to reply with your name, please reply with your students name.
