Weekly Overview November 2, 2009

Wednesday….

Pictures are coming home today!!!  No school this Friday.

We are having a great week…

Language Arts:  Our focus has been The Hundred Dresses.  Activities, vocabulary,  writing and drawing are all focused around this story that we will go see next Tuesday!!  Some discussions and writings have focused around bullying.   Your child should bring a lunch to school that day.  Thanks.

What can your child tell you about compound words and contractions?

Homework:  As you know, your child will get a worksheet each day, relating to the Time Magazine.  They are being graded and returned each day this week.

Math:  Lessons 3.5-3.7 will be completed.  We are covering lesson 3.6 in two days.  Tonight’s homework will be a fact sheet.  Time your child.  How long did the worksheet take them.  Due tomorrow.  3.7 homework will go home and be due Monday.  Thanks.  How is your child doing with perimeter and area?

Social Studies:  We are working in our Map Essentials book, reading aerial and photo maps.

Science:  Water.  Several read aloud stories focused around water and it’s importance to our world.

Art:  Tomorrow we will make “pinch pots”-a hand-formed ceramic pot!!

Sorry for the delay this week!  Have a nice rest of the week.

Just a reminder.  Please join the PTA if you have not.  We have a “GOAL” chart outside the office that your children made to help keep track of membership and we are watching it grow!!   $10.00 per family.  Many, many thanks!!
