Hello! It’s almost November and we are moving right along!!!
Please remember that Friday is a teacher in-service day-no school for the students.
I still have a few field trip forms that need to be returned and they are due!!! Thanks
Just a reminder that Halloween will not be celebrated at Ray this year.
We will celebrate end-of-Month birthdays with a healthy snack if you want to bring something in and your child had a birthday!! Thanks.
Language Arts: I am excited that over the next few weeks-through November, we will be studying Native Americans. We will focus on this in our reading and our writing. This obviously goes along with social studies, which will be a fun connection!! So, we will not have a Journeys’ test and work through the next few weeks. We will will learn about the culture, history, art, and customs of different tribes of North America. We have already started and your children have shown what they know and have already learned some.
We will also be working in our Grammar book, working with prepositional phrases and preposition. Please review with your child. We will also work on Making Sentences Complete, as to Fragments (not expressing a complete thought.)
Homework: Tonight your child should list at least five things that they learned about Native Americans. They all seemed to learn much!! These should be in sentence form. Due tomorrow.
Your child should be reading 30 minutes each night for homework! Thanks.
Tuesday and Wednesday-Your child will get a What;s in a Name? worksheet to complete and on Wednesday, they will get a Native Americans Poem that they should read, recite, and become more fluent in reading. They will have a map to complete with this poem. Thanks.
Math: We will complete Lessons 3.5-3.7 this week. Today we counted Pockets and made Bar Graphs and learned how to find the median. What can your child tell you? We will solve frames-and-arrows problems and work with money, counting change. Your child should have a top-it game with money with them today to play at home. Ask to see their game and play with the;m!!!
Homework: Monday through Wednesday, lessons 3.5-3.7
Science: We made parachutes-hope your child showed you how their parachute worked and why? our experiment this week is Pushing On Air!! (air is matter will be confirmed!!)
Have a nice week.
