News from 209
Mrs. Jenzen's Rockin Room
Welcome to October!
This month in Math we will be working with subtraction and mental math. We will also dive into BAR Models for solving word problems at the end of the month.
In Reading we will be reviewing Setting and Character, Locating Information and Dictionary Skills. We will wrap up our 1st unit the week of MEA. After our break we will begin working with Facts and Opinions.
Be sure to practice the vocabulary words each week with your child. Use them in sentences as well as define them. Taking time to read the story of the week is also helpful for them. Discuss it as they read it with you. They are tested on the story and vocabulary words each Friday.
