What's New This Week?

Language Arts


Our main story selection this week is titled Officer Buckle and Gloria, a fiction text. In Lesson 15 our Essential Question is “What might cause a story character to change?” Target skills are cause & effect, compound words, abbreviations, and the schwa vowel sound.



VERY EXCITING! We will have a real live "Officer Buckle and Gloria" come visit us this week. Mrs. Swenson's husband, a canine officer, will be coming!

Math

ENVISIONS MATH

We will begin Topic 9, subtracting two digit numbers. Tricky, tricky as we subtract numbers with regrouping. **** We will have our Topic 8 (adding 2 digit numbers) on Monday. We don't typically like to give assessments on Mondays, but feel the kiddos will be a-ok with this and are ready regardless of any practice at home.


FIRST IN MATH

Keep up with the great work on the First in Math website. We will be checking for First in Math players EVERY DAY now.

This is a wonderful activity to help strengthen your child's math skills on different levels and provide enrichment. www.firstinmath.com
