Field Trip week!

Thank you...

Thank you all who have donated to Wilson's Write-a-check!

Just a reminder, Write-a-check will be going on all next week. If you donate, your child is added to a raffle and could win a free write-a-check T shirt! Please refer to the flyers sent home last week for more information.

Field Trip

Just reminder that our Field Trip is scheduled for THIS Friday! Your child will need to wear a Wilson Shirt and sneakers as well as come to school with a completely disposable lunch and water bottle. Chaperones will NOT be carrying around anything other than plastic water bottles for their group. More information will be sent next week to chaperones discussing times and procedures.


In math we will be beginning our unit on comparing numbers. We will be discussing the difference between numbers using language such as "3 is greater than 1" or "this pile only has 2 and the other has 8, so it is less." We will be practicing this skill in graphing, estimation and groups of manipulatives.

Language Arts

We will continue our focus on characters, setting and retell. This week we will add character traits into our read aloud discussions. We will be taking characters from farm, Halloween and fall books and discussing adjectives to describe them. Our sight word focus will be and and do.

Science/ Social Studies

We will continue with our PBL this week. We will be learning how to interview people we do not know, what type of questions are appropriate and what questions best fit our research purpose. We will also learn how to use "chatter pix" on the ipad to prepare us for collecting information on the staff member each group has been assigned to tell about. Also in Science will be getting ready for the farm by doing activities with Farm animals!
