Happy October!

Last week in science and social studies we studied maps and different forms of electricity.

This week's homework is build a 100's chart and become more familiar with them. This will help increase your students number sense, as well become more familiar with this tool. We use them daily in our problem solving. They will also be coming home with their guided reading books as well as 1-2 other books from my classroom library for daily reading. Homework will be due Friday 10/7. The books are on loan so they will need to be returned on Friday as well.

Take a look at the week ahead:


  • Reading-Sight word work, Phonics, and leveled Guided Reading
  • Manipulating a 100's chart, problem-solving and goal work.

Writer's Workshop:

We are going to start a Book Creator project. The students are going to use their iPads to create personal narratives.They are going to take their writing from the past 6 weeks and create their own books!
