Dear Parents,

With fall temperatures settling in, it’s time to start marking sure that your child has a jacket or a sweatshirt to wear outside.  Please be sure that your child’s outwear is clearly marked with their name, remember that after several washings those names begin to fade.  Our “lost and found” table can be piled high and it is helpful if your child’s belongings are marked.

Math

Students have continued work on renaming 3-digit numbers.  This has been a challenging skill that we will continue to work on during our review problems.  This past week in Math we spent time comparing and ordering up to 3-digit numbers and working on the concept of counting on and back with numbers within 1,000 by 1’s, 10’s, and 100’s.  Students will review and assess this coming week.

Homework

Up until now, your child’s homework has consisted of fact worksheets.  This will continue through this week. Next week, we will send home worksheets on Monday and Wednesday.  On Tuesday and Thursday, students will be completing IXL objectives. The homework objectives will be posted on the blog next week.

Language

Our work with singular and plural nouns continued this week with irregular.  Some examples of irregular plural nouns are child/children, foot/feet, and man/men.  Students also learned that some nouns are the same in both the singular and plural forms like 1 fish or many fish.  Students will complete a short assessment on nouns.

This week we will start our work on verbs.

Writing

Students have completed their first writing that has gone through the complete writing process.  Student riddles and self portraits are now hanging in the hall. Please see if you can guess which one is your child.

Our new writing is working on an opinion piece.  Students have been practicing the parts of an opinion piece using the acronym O (state your Opinion), R (give Reasons for your opinion), E (Explain your reasons), O (restate your Opinion).  Students are currently writing their opinion on the best candy.

Projects

Our new project is focused on the subject of Science.  Students will spend the next few weeks exploring the topic of matter.  This past week students learned about the properties of matter that include color, texture, hardness, and flexibility.  On Thursday, students observed 8 different substances focusing on their properties. We will continue exploring the three types of matter this week.

Wishing everyone a great week!!

Sincerely,

Anne Bloomfield and Shannon Garcia
