Community One Kicks off Book Madness (Complete With a Bracket System and a Sweet Sixteen of Books)
Discuss With Your Child As the Tournament Progresses
The students record the data each day we have a book challenge.
Right next to this poem is a bracket the students will fill out as we proceed to the next round of the tournament. It will allow you to discuss with your child any upcoming book challenges.
Thanks to a special family that supplemented Mrs. McDevitt's classroom library to make sure Room 116 had a copy of each title!

You should be able to access the reading and math components of Sumdog. Maximize the school's subscription and allow your child to use Sumdog at home each evening.
Your child should have a classroom library book that comes home each night. It is not a problem if it takes more than one night to read it. As your child is reading the book, ask him/her the point of view of the text. If the author is telling the story, a character or a narrator.
This week we will investigate two characters and compare their similarities and differences.
In writing, we begin to investigate nonfiction text. Nonfiction texts allow the reader to use various text features to locate key facts or information. For example: labeling, graphs, maps.
In math, we continue to work with story problems that have adding and subtracting elements . We will be measuring to create the zones of the ocean for the Community One aquarium display. We will also begin to add three numbers together...looking for combinations of two numbers we already know and then adding on the third number.
