On Monday Arrowhead is participating in a full school evacuation drill. At 10:00 on Monday morning we will all leave the school and walk to the Lillis center. The whole drill will only take about 30-45 minutes, but please make sure that your child is wearing comfortable shoes and has a jacket.
This week we will continue to practice the reading comprehension skills of inferring and drawing conclusions. We will also continue our research for our inquiry groups, the kids are looking into the question: What are changes that affect families?
In math this week we will be using place value blocks as a strategy for subtracting 3 digit numbers. We will also be practicing subtracting across zero. When using the place value blocks we are practicing our regrouping tens to ones and hundreds to tens, it is a great visual for the kids. If you are wanting to practice at home and don't have place-value blocks the kids just draw a box for 100, a line for 10, and a dot for 1.
Please make sure to practice spelling words ever night at home, this week the skill is long o words.
