Welcome back! I hope everyone had a great break! Last week we did some reader's theater presentations, please check them out under student work. The kids also worked on their inquiry projects, which they will finish throughout the week this week. I am hoping to present on Friday.
In reading this week we are staring unit 2 of Wonders. The big idea this unit is:what does it take to solve a problem? This week we will be focusing specifically on this essential question: why is working together a good way to solve a problem? We will be working on the skills of making predictions, identifying the theme, folktales, and antonyms.
In grammar this week we will be working on proper and common nouns. In writing we will start our next writing project, an informative How-To piece.
In math this week we are jumping into multiplication strategies for multiplying by: 2, 4, 5, 10, 3, 6, and 7. We will also learn about the distributive property of multiplication.
In social studies we are working on our Montana brochures and in science I hope to start our gliders if the materials come in!
Picture retakes are this Friday. We were not given very many picture retake forms, so if you know you want retakes please let me know and write retakes in your kiddo's planner and I'll send a form home with them.
Friday is also Family Fun Night where the kids can wear their Halloween costumes and enjoy the fun and games from 5:30-7:30. This will also be where the silent auction will take place for the Saturday Live baskets-this will be done at 6:30. I'll be there and I hope to see you there too!!
