Weekly Overview September 25, 2017

Good Morning and hope all had a good weekend!

-Thanks for snacks coming in, but we could use some more this week!

-Remember every Wednesday is Spirit Day-have your child wear green and white!

-Just a reminder, that my email address is jmclement@cps.edu or you can always call the office or write a note if you need to get in touch with me!

Language Arts- Again this week, and for the next several weeks, we will be working on asking and answering questions using who, where, how, what, why and when.  We will include discussions on Author’s Purpose in writing and working on grammar in writing statements and questions.

Homework:  Your child will have their homework sheet today, that is due this Thursday.  Thanks

Math:  Hope your child mentioned that we are working with calculators to add numbers up to 100!  We will continue with this all week.  We will again work with quarters.  Please review at home, too.  A good thing to do is get a bowl of coins and have your child grab some and count how much change they picked up!  This will really help in their counting coins.  We will also be doing this in the classroom.  Your children will skip count on number grids and see patterns in their counting. (count by 3;s, 4’s , etc.)

Homework:  Homelinks has been ordered and we will probably start them next week.  Your child will have another Math Facts packet to work on this week.  It is due Friday.  The idea is to get these facts down with really just knowing them.  Thanks for your help!

Science:  We have started our unit on Solids and Liquids.  What can your child tell you that they have learned.  We are discussing properties of solids and grouping solids.

Social Studies:  We are still working with our community unit and working with our new second step unit that has us thinking about how we work together as a group.

Thanks for all your help!  Have a great week!

Jean Clement
