## What are we learning?

Unit: Mayflower/Thanksgiving- we have started our 2nd PBL project! How will we as Pilgrim Families decide what to take on our Mayflower voyage?

ELA focus: Main Idea, Metacognition- thinking about our thinking when we are reading, and Author's Purpose! Why did the author write this story? To persuade us to do/think something? To entertain us or make us laugh? Or inform us and give us facts?

Math: Money- counting a collection of coins. Make sure to practice identifying coins at home and their value. Students should know to count nickels by 5s, dimes by 10s, and pennies by 1s. Practice this at home!

Also, please practice COUNTING TO 120!!! Many students get stuck after 100...

Science: Introduction to Matter- Solids, Liquids and Gases!

Social Studies: Needs and Wants- PBL project

*Your child is coming home with their spelling test from the week. Ask them how they did and brainstorm ways they can improve. I know practice doesn't make perfect- but it definitely makes progress! Please consider practicing the weekly words at home- as well as the words your child missed on their test! :)
