Coming up next week in our classroom:
Writing: We will be starting a new descriptive writing project that is very fun and just in time for Halloween. Be sure to ask your student what this new writing project is all about!
Reading: Groups have taken off and are going strong! We have been talking about strategies that we can use as a reader to help us understand what we are reading and how to check for if we do understand what we are reading.
Math: We wrapped up our unit on collecting, reading, and using data today. That test will be Monday. I don't particularly like to test after a long weekend, but we need to get in and going on our next unit which will be about measurment. Your child may have brought home 3 worksheets to practice. These ARE NOT homework and aren't exactly like the test, but will give practice with reading graphs and making graphs like they will on Monday.
Social Studies: We are starting a new government unit this coming week. We will begin by talking about being a good citizen and also talk about the Decleration of Independence and the purpose of the Constitution.
Our fall party will be Wednesday, October 31st at 2:30. Also, be sure to send in order forms and money if you would like to purchase a Pumpkin Gram! I think that is all for this week. Have a good 3 day weekend (or your students at least!) since there is NO SCHOOL TOMORROW, Friday, October 2
