Reminders

  • Please remember to have your child at morning assembly by 7:40am. Morning assembly is a great way to start our day together as a class family.
  • Make sure to check and initial their Panther folder daily for behavior notes and school/community information.
  • Check their blue Homework folder for any assignments. Remember all homework is given Monday and due Thursday with the exception of spelling tests, which will be administered on Friday.

Reading

We focus on making connections with our reading. As readers we connect to the text and hold on to deep connections versus shallow ones. A deeper connection will help with meaning.


Students will be expected to have at least one library book within their colored dot.


Aggie Dream Team...Read 500 pages by December 6th and earn two free tickets to the basketball game on February 20th vs. Alabama. One outstanding Reading All-Star from each age group who reads the most pages will win a grand prize from the Aggie Basketball team.

Writing

As writers, we critique other texts. We give positive comments about areas we enjoy and techniques we might try. We take pride in our own work and share our writing with others.

Grammar

We will continue to write using complete sentences. We'll focus on the difference between a statement and a question. They should apply knowledge to their own writing as well as others.

Spelling

This week we focus on adding -s or -es to singular nouns making them plural. Although students are expected to master these words, applying the phonics rule will aid in their writing and reading.
