Newsletter week of 11-24-14 and 12-1-14

11-24-14

 

 

Dear Parents and Guardians,

 

Happy Thanksgiving! Since this is another short week, there will NO spelling words and NO homework until the week of 12-1-14. This week’s newsletter will cover both the week of 11-24-14 and 12-1-14

 

Please make sure your child reads TO you every night.  They can check out books on Wednesday during library.  However, if they need a new one before then, they can go before school or at the end the day. Becoming a better reader is like playing a sport. The more you practice the better you get.

 

In reading this 9 weeks, we are working on the following skills:

  • use table of contents
  • possessives and contractions
  • make and confirm predictions in fictional texts
  • describe characters, setting, and important events in fiction and poetry
  • make and confirm predictions in nonfictional texts.

In Math we will begin working on fractions and continue through the week of 12-1-14.

This week and next in science, we continue with our unit on weather. Please encourage your student to watch the weather forecast on television.

In Social Studies we will do review work comparing the Powhatan and Lakota Indians. Next week we will start learning about the Pueblos.

I hope everyone has a restful Thanksgiving holiday. If you are traveling, please be safe. Thank you for all of your support.

This will be a short, yet busy week.  On Monday and Tuesday, we will work hard to finish reading Reading A to Z’s Seeds of Revolution.  Students will complete a sort and a Quick Check on this book.  Students will have their choice of one of three Thanksgiving writing prompts Monday/Tuesday.  We will finish (everyone’s favorite!) Daily Language Week 9.  In social studies we learn about the colonial social classes, and in science we will continue with SOL 5.4 Matter.  In math we will work with plane figures (SOL 5.13), and assess on the Order of Operations (SOL 5.7).  We will also continue working with tangrams.  This was something that students really enjoyed working with last week!

Our A. R. party for students that made their goals for the first nine weeks will be on Tuesday, November 25th.  Students will eat lunch in the classroom, watch School House Rock, and be treated to their choice of ice cream from the cafeteria.

Remember that Wednesday is an early dismissal day.  Lunch will be at 11:05 – 11:35, and dismissal will be at 1:10 for car riders and 1:20 for buses.  I hope that you all have a wonderfully relaxing and family-centered Thanksgiving!

Winters’ Words for the Week!!

“I’m thankful for every moment.”   Al Green

This is truly the season of Thanksgiving. We have a short week together. However, there is still much that we hope to get accomplished. We will have the science test on plants on Monday, 11/24/14. We will also have several in class graded assignments in reading, social studies, and math. When we come back from the break we will be back at full speed in our work. It is my sincere hope that you have a relaxing, peaceful, and safe holiday. I look forward to seeing my wonderful group back on Monday, 12/1/14. Take care.
