Students are expected to read every night at home- weekends are optional! Please encourage your child to read at least 15 minutes every weekday. Monthly reading logs are always due on the last day of the month!
Comprehension is a key component of reading. Ask your child about the story they are reading! Some questions you might ask are:
* What do you think this book will be about? Why?
*What do you think will happen next?
*What is the problem in the story? The Solution?
*When you read this part, what did you picture in your head?
*Who are the main characters? What are they like?
*How did the characters change throughout the story?

Reading: This week we finished reading our variations of Cinderella. We are now reading different fractured fairytales each day to aide the students in thinking of ideas for their own fractured fairytale writing.
Math: We are on our last Module for the year which was focused on identifying shapes this past week. Looking forward, we will be learning how to tell time on an analog clock.
Writing: This week we planned and began writing our fractured fairytales. It has been very fun seeing all of the creativity in the room with these writing pieces!
Social Studies: We are wrapping up our social studies unit this week by discussing the links between Issaquah’s past and present. In the past week we have discussed how hops, dairy and coal mining brought settlers to our area. We had an Issaquah history trunk come where we were able to see and use things that people used over a hundred years ago!
