What's happening this week...
Word Wisdom- Students did VERY well on their homework and on their quiz. Congratulations! I sent home the vocabulary cards last Friday. Please focus on the 10 words and definitions. We will use the root words in class later, so ignore them for now. I have had some requests to add the sheet here so you can enlarge them. CLICK HERE.
Language Arts- This weeks' spelling pattern are blends (st, br, str, nd, sk, cl, and tw). We will continue to practice identifying this pattern in our reading and centers as well. Spelling and Dictation test will be on Thursday. In grammar we are reviewing Subjects and Predicates. Our first grammar quiz went extremely well!
Math-- We are well underway reviewing addition strategies. We will have a quiz over this on Thursday. I will send home their math journals each night, starting tomorrow, to help them review. There are foldables and vocabulary cards to help them review. Please be sure they come back to school each morning as we use them daily.
We will continue to practice our addition facts everyday and then graph our results. This daily practice is not something that I grade, however students are tracking their practice on a graph. Students should be fluent in their addition facts by November and subtraction by February. These are every bit as important as sight words. I gave our first timed test last week over 0's and 1's. Please continue to practice math facts every night. I have placed an extra math calendar in your child's notebook. Please fill it our each night with how many minutes your child practiced. If you cannot always get online to practice, please use flash cards or play addition war with your child. They love it!!!!
Social Studies/Science--Our Earth's Materials Unit is rocking! We have learned about natural resources, erosion, weathering and the different types of soil. We will have a test next Wednesday.
Second and Third Grade will be performing for Chapel this month!
Please be sure to get your child here in the morning with plenty of time to spare. Announcements and pledges begin at 8:15 sharp and we go right into specials and chapel at 8:20. Many of our students are not having enough time to take care of their morning routines. Thank You!
Students need to wear belts everyday if they have on bottoms that have belt loops.
(We all looked great today!!!)
Please send in a healthy snack and a bottle of water each day.
