Writer's Workshop

We are learning how to add dialogue to our personal narratives this week. We will also emphasize on puntuation, spelling and capitalization. The most important thing is that they concentrate on these components of writing during the editing process. As stated before we haven't focused a lot on these things yet because their words are the most important part of the writing during the drafting stage.


We discussed rounding this past week. Overall, I think most seem to be grasping the concept. We will touch on this content throughout the year.

This week our focus will be addition and subtraction problems. I will be sending home some strategies that will help assist your child in solving these types of problem. They used most of these strategies last week. We encourage that they use the number line and break-away strategy mostly this year.

Reader's Workshop

We will begin our emphasis on Character Traits. As you are reading with your child ask them to describe the characters in the story. We really want to expand their vocabulary. We don't want them to only use the word "nice" to describe a character. They will have a copy of character traits in their book boxes, but I will also be sending home a copy in their purple folders, so you can use it at home.
