Find out what is happening in class!

Mrs. Joyce - Reading, Writing, Spelling, and Social Studies

In class this week we are reading Personal Narratives by Patricia Polacco. We will be working on identifying antonyms and synonyms and homophones and homograpghs, along with writing personal narratives and summaries.

On Monday a Family Interview paper will be coming home. Please take some time to fill this out with your student. We will be using them for a writing assignment.

In Social Studies this week we will begin talking about how Group Decisions and Heroes shape our community.

Look for Spelling words in their planners and remember to have your student READ 20 MIN EVERY NIGHT.

Mrs. Robinson - Math & Science

In Math class we are entering the world of MULTIPLICATION! This means we are using equal groups, skip counting (aloud and on number lines), and arrays to express multiplication. We will continue to work on our word problems and solving these with the L.O.V.E. strategy. Please encourage your student to give 100% each and every word problem. We also have a SKIP COUNT CHALLENGE happening! Students can verbally skip count aloud for me and earn stickers for their chart! This helps us transition to memorization of facts so encourage your child to participate!

Science - We will be continuing our study of energy. See if you students can spot energy (electric, heat, mechanical, potential, and kinetic) all around them!
