We have made it through the first full week!

Next week we will continue learning about:

Math- Greater numbers, adding and subtracting numbers

Social Studies- Communities; urban, suburban, rural and places to live, work and play

Reading- Continue practicing the routines for Daily 5 "Read to Self" and finish DRA reading assessments

Writing- ideas to help start a good story

Today we took our first spelling test, please make sure to practice these words at home. We also have dictation sentences during each test. It's a great idea to practice reading a sentence to your child so he/she can try writing the sentence correctly. Dictation sentences are graded on capitalization where appropriate, punctuation and correctly spelled spelling words.

Reading minutes will begin tonight. By next Friday morning, your child should read 60 minutes. The time read can be documented in their daily agenda folder. PLEASE take at least 10 minutes each night to read with your child or find a quiet place for them to read. This will be very beneficial for your child. Reading minutes will increase throughout the school year.

Your child is welcome to bring a healthy snack each day, but it is limited to only healthy snack choices and not a drink other then water. A water bottle is acceptable to bring each day as well. Healthy snack options are pretzels, crackers, fruits or veggies, string cheese, raisins, granola bars, popcorn (already popped) etc.
