News for the week!

Good morning! Our Warrior Walk-a-Thon is in progress and we're having a BLAST! Meanwhile, here's what we've done this week:
  • We have worked on our personal narratives to prepare for our writing celebration next week (more info to come). We've been working on organizing our spreads and space on each page, making our words look right, and dressing our characters as well as including lots of details in our illustrations.
  • Did you know we have been going to med school this week? We're learning to help sick sentences (those without punctuation, correct capitals, correct spacing, etc.). This week our focus has been on a capital letter at the beginning and punctuation at the end. We are GREAT doctors!
  • Fact families are a main focus of our math this week. We can make FOUR (that's a lot!) facts using just THREE numbers! Ask us how!
  • We are continuing to study different tricks and tips for being better readers, like what certain letter combinations say and cross-checking information by asking ourselves if something looks and sounds right and makes sense.
  • In Power Up time, we've been playing lots of addition and pattern games with Mrs. Willaman's class.
Things to remember for next week:
  • Midterm ends Tuesday. You may not see grades for all subjects yet, but no worries. We are plodding away with them.
  • No spelling words yet. I just completed everyone's evaluation for everything (reading, writing, grammar, and language), so it's getting close!
  • We'll be having our first Writing Celebration in our classroom next Friday at 10:45 am. Come out to see some great writing and then maybe stay to have lunch with your student too!
Have a great weekend!
