Weekly Review

I can't believe we are done with our second week of school! We are building our reading stamina so we can read longer, understand more, and increase our vocabulary. Please ask your child to give you a summary of the book they are reading during our silent reading time. Ask them to describe the characters, setting, the problem and solution! In math, we are reading and writing numbers in different ways, combining and trading coins. Thank you for continuing to practice addition and subtraction facts! Fact fluency is such an important part of our daily mental math practice. We have also begun learning about maps and why they are important.

Homework

In your child's blue folder, their homework menu will be found. Homework will be passed out on Fridays and returned the following Friday. Your child has one week to complete THREE. These are multi-leveled across all subjects. Your child must choose two boxes to complete. The middle square is a must do, typically a reading or math practice page. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call or email.


Thank you for your support with our class dojo. If you are not signed up, please let me know and I can add you.


Have a great three day weekend!
