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

As readers we use different strategies to help with tricky words we encounter. We also delve into our schema, i.e. prior knowledge, to understand those tricky words.


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

Reading Skill

This week we key into main idea and details. Think "big picture," then support that with proof from the text.

Writing

As writers, we prepare our stories for future publication. We look at our work through different lenses and meet with others for revision and support.


We've been discussing and practicing letter/postcard writing through the Wee Deliver system. Quite a few students have taken to this type of writing. If possible encourage your child to send a letter or holiday card to a distant family member or friend.

Grammar

We will continue to write using complete sentences. We'll focus on combining subjects using the conjunction and. They should apply knowledge to their own writing as well as others.

Spelling

This week we focus on consonant diagraphs th, wh, sh, and ch. Although students are expected to master these words, applying the phonics rule will aid in their writing and reading.
