Highlights from Week 6, Oct. 5-Oct. 8
Our learning targets are changing daily as the kids continue to grow as readers, writers and mathematicians. :) During our Authors' Circle, students are sharing their personal narratives, and we can hear so many great details. Next week, we will continue to focus on personal narratives, and use Elephant and Piggie books to find inspiration. Our reading groups are going well, with all students making great progress. In math next week, we will continue to explore what we already know about subtraction, and apply those concepts to story problems. For science, our study will move to evaporation.
We started Reading Buddies this week with Mrs. Davis' 4th graders. The kids enjoyed getting to know their buddies, and we look forward to seeing them again in two weeks.
With the help of Daisy, our new Top Dog will be selected on Monday!
Check out our classroom updates, and as always, be sure to contact me with any questions. Hope you're enjoying some family time this weekend.
We learned about vowel teams this week, and we are using this song as our transition back to the carpet during Daily 5 reading. It helps us remember that, "When two vowels go walking, the first one does the talking."
Next week, we will continue our work with Listen to Reading as our newest Daily 5 Choice.
Our field trip to the Elephant and Piggie play is scheduled for October 20th. We leave at 11 and return around 1:30. Our parent chaperones are Dana Johnson, Rhonda Birchard, Kim Kammeijer, Cecilia Robertson and Gwen Neale. Chaperones, please plan to arrive at school by 10:40 to get your group assignments and help with last minute needs.
