Can you believe it's already the 22nd of October?! We are almost to November!
We are starting a new unit this week and its all about Animals! Our essential question is "How do animals survive?"
Comprehension Skill: "I can identify character, setting, and plot!"
Comprehension Strategy: "I can make and revise predictions!"
Genre: Realistic Fiction
Spelling Words: Long O Short O sounds
In writing we are working on personal narratives. We are learning how to identify small moments and add details to those small moments. We will continue focusing on organization and using strong topic and closing sentences.
In Math we are wrapping up place value and heading into Addition strategies. You can help at home by allowing your child to use extra math or even flash cards.
Students are to know their addition and subtraction facts fluently 1-20.
This week is a short week of learning! We will be learning and investigating spiders this week! We will be looking for main topics, key details, and facts that tell us more about spiders and how they live.
In Math we are continuing our studies in 3 digit place value. We are getting better and better at recognizing that the place of a digit determines its value.
Remember: No School this Thursday (10/18 -- 10/ 19)
Enjoy the long weekend!!
I wanted to share with you our classroom Auction Basket theme for the year. Just a reminder, We are auctioning our baskets at Family Fun Night this year (Friday, October 26 from 5:00-7:00 - Halloween Family Fun)
Our Basket theme for the year is " A Cozy Coffee Basket" A (fall-ish) Basket. So anything that makes you feel cozy, warm, and any and all fall feelings, that will be perfect!
Please consider having your child bring in 1-2 items for our classroom basket. All basket proceeds go directly to Arrowhead School for software learning activities. Thank you so much for your donations.
Ideas for the basket:
various Coffee flavors, coffee mugs, espresso, coffee makers, coffee creamer, coffee gift cards, cozy blankets, baking (coffee cake), good books, candles, tea, family friendly movies and board games for cozy fall evenings.
Really anything Cozy. :)
I will also need one parent that is willing to put the basket together after we have all the items for our basket. They will need to volunteer to find a basket that fits the theme and wrap it all up. Let me know if that is something you would be interested in doing. Thanks again!
Here are a few pictures for inspiration! I feel like I could go to target and get just about anything from their fall hearth and home section and it would work. :)
Thank you so much!
