Newsletter week of 10-21-19

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Our annual Farm Day field trip has been rescheduled for Tuesday, October 29th. All the other information remains the same.

Important things to know about homework are:

  • The homework sheet for the week, along with the spelling words, will be glued in your child’s agenda on Mondays. 
  • Please make sure your child reads TO you every night. They can check out books on Monday during library. However, if they need a new one before then, they can visit the library before school.
  • The spelling words are part of the reading skills for that week so please check that they are doing one menu item nightly and returning the assignment to school every day.
  •  I will send home a reading passage that your child needs to read to you nightly.

We will work on the following skills in Reading this week:

  • Ask and answer questions in nonfiction texts
  • synonyms

In Science this week, we will continue the unit on weather which is Chapter 6.

This week in Math the students will begin learning about place value to 100.  We will continue learning about out Changing Lives in social studies which is chapter 2. 

Sincerely,

Mrs. Cindy Martie
