Notes for the week:

  • School picture day is Tomorrow Tuesday, October 24th.  Please return the form to school or complete it online. 
  • Our first field trip is coming up on October 31st.  The fee is $15.  Let me know if you would like to chaperone. If your child has not paid I will assume they are not attending as all money was due last week.  Please let me know if this is not the case.
  • Please pay the $85 student fee.
  • Please join the PTO for $30 per family. The PTO supports our school in so many ways!
  • We need donations of black dry erase markers.  We use them every day and our supply is running low.  Thank you to Henry, Khaola and Meral for the donations!

READER’S WORKSHOP/Daily 5

This week we will read Pumpkin Town and will study vocabulary and themes from the text. Students will discuss character traits, major events in the story and the author’s purpose or lesson.

Sight Words- of, was, are, for that  (optional homework in folders)

Vocabulary- no new vocabulary, we will learn about antonyms

WRITER’S WORKSHOP

The students will continue to write narrative stories.  This week we will focus on transition words and using details to describe what our characters did or felt.  We will also add more detail to the setting.

MATH

This week, we will complete with unit 2, with the assessment on Wednesday.   We will begin unit 3, more number stories.

SCIENCE

We will continue to look closely at patterns in the sky.  Please complete the moon homework by Friday.  The goal of the project is for students to observe the moon phases.  I had hoped for it to happen 4 nights in a row but that has been difficult.

SOCIAL STUDIES

We continue our discussion about wants and needs.  We will also compare different animal families.  Information went home about an optional Dia de los Muertos project that Ms. Sheridan is putting together.
