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 continue our nonfiction book study. As with fiction, when we read nonfiction, we ask questions before and during reading. We activate and revise our schema, prior knowledge.


We will revisit cause and effect this week. Students will identify the cause of a given situation and its effects.

Writing

We wrap up our Small Moments unit of study. Students prepare selected piece for publication. We then begin our new unit: Writing for Readers, where we look at working harder and in different ways so that others can read our writing.

Grammar

This week we look at the structure of a paragraph. Students determine what sentences help support the main idea of the paragraph and which sentences are unnecessary. As always we look at complete sentences with proper punctuation for a statement and a question.

Spelling

This week we look at compound words. Although students are expected to master these words, applying the phonics rule will aid in their writing and reading.
