Dear Family Member:
This week our class will be discussing the meaning of teamwork. We will talk about how members of a team can work together.
Here are some activities that you can do with your child to help reinforce the skills we’ll be practicing.
- Words to Know: context clues You and your child will work together to make up a crossword puzzle using the vocabulary words.
- Spelling/Phonics: syllabication—closed syllables You will read each word aloud. Your child will repeat the word and then write the word, leaving a space between the syllables.
Comprehension: author’s point of view
You and you child will read about how teamwork helps to make a newspaper. Together you will complete a chart reflecting the author’s opinion of each team member.
This week in science we started our unit on geology which we’re calling “The Birth of Rocks.” We learned about volcanoes and where they exist in the world. Below I’ve included a link to some amazing pictures of active volcanoes. Show these to your child; it’s guaranteed to be a conversation starter about what they learned!
