Hope you’re settling in nicely to the new year. We took a week off the homework packet, but you should find one this week in your child’s folder. There is also information about the upcoming spelling bee. There is no school on Monday because of Martin Luther King’s day.
Focus of the week:
Writing: We’re continuing to write about non-fiction books in writing. This week students are learning to add or take away details, and also set goals.
Math: Students are learning to apply the take from 10 strategy when subtracting and how to organize their drawings to show reasoning.
Reading: We’re reading about Polar Bears and comparing non-fiction to fiction books, in order to identify non-fictions text features and apply it to their writing. We are also learning about the “ch” and “sh” word parts. Try going for a word hunt at home when you read!
Emotional/social: We’re learning about strong emotions and calming down anger.
