Our new story this week is a humorous fiction text titled The Signmaker's Assistant. The Essential Question this week is "What can you learn from signs in your community?" This week our phonics skill is words with ar, the vocabulary strategy is synonyms, and in grammar we will focus on commas in dates and places.

We will continue to work on writing fictional narrative paragraphs too!

Literacy Night - Our Literacy Night is Thursday! We are looking forward to a fun evening. As you arrive and enter the pod, you will be given a "color ticket" which will designate which classroom center to begin at. (All 4 centers will be in the red pod.) As you finish, you will then rotate around the pod classrooms in a clockwise direction. Following this will help to prevent too many adults/children in one classroom at a time. Looking forward to seeing you on Thursday night!

* Please review your child's homework nightly, and sign their homework book. Thank you.
