Reading: We are reading several stories from our reading series, focusing on short u patterns and sequence. We will take a comprehension test on Friday. Our word skills this week are ending sounds, short vowels, and titles and pictures. We are working on capitalization and punctuation in writing. Spelling test on Friday is based on your child’s sort features (ex: short o).
Math: We will review addition and subtraction strategies and will be working on mixed practice (addition and subtraction) for the rest of the nine weeks.
Science: We are studying natural resources. Students need to be able to name natural resources. They need to know that “natural” means it comes from nature. They need to know that resources do not last forever, and we can reduce, reuse, and recycle them. A study guide has been posted on the page. You can also visit the link that says “Natural Resources.” Enjoy!
Social Studies: We are looking at holidays (Columbus Day, Presidents’ Day, July 4th) and then will begin timelines. The vocabulary words associated with this SOL are on the study guide. We will be working on this through the end of the month.
Notes: Science Circus will be Friday, October 30, from 2-3:30. We will do many experiments with pumpkins. If you would like to volunteer and or/donate a pumpkin (pie size preferred), make sure you have a current form on file. Any help is greatly appreciated!
