Field Trip to Paradise Park

Thank you to our parent volunteers for being awesome helpers!

Reader's Workshop

This week in Reader's Workshop we started our sixth reading unit which focuses on the characters in our stories. We have been talking about using the illustrations to understand what the character is doing and how they are feeling.

Writer's Workshop

This week in Writer's Workshop we continued our unit on Persuasive Writing. Your child is writing about a problem they see in the word and is persuading the readers to help them fix it. Next week we will begin talking about writing letters to persuade our readers.

Math Workshop

This week in Math Workshop we finished our unit on Measurement. Your child learned about comparing objects by length, weight, and capacity. Our next unit will focus on shapes in which your child will learn about 2D and 3D shapes and their characteristics. We will also spend some time focusing on comparing shapes based on their sides and angles.

Questions to Ask Your Child

  • What spelling pattern did you work on during Words Their Way this week?
  • What problem are you writing about in Writer's Workshop? How do you think this problem can be fixed?
