Math & Science Update

This week in Math, we continued learning about place value with tens and ones and also hundreds, tens and ones. Wednesday we took a 10 question quiz. Thursday, we took time to go over the quiz. They will be coming home in next week's Thursday folder. In Science, we completed a few papers on the life cycle of a chick. Thursday we began learning about habitats.

Reading & Language Arts Update

In Reading this week we will be reading and talking about Veterans and Thanksgiving as we move into the month of November. In Language Arts we are continuing our work on Personal Narratives or "Small Moments". However, we've moved on from the generation of stories, into revising and editing. We are working on things such as spelling, spacing, punctuation and capitalization.
