Hard to believe we are in the home stretch of quarter two and first semester. We have much to do in the next three weeks, but I’m sure time will fly by on our way to Winter Break.
This week, we will combine the skills for Unit 3, Weeks 3 and 4. We’ll practice summarizing and finding the main idea in a number of cool stories about outer space. Our spelling words will come from week 3, and you can expect a practice list to come home on Monday. The kids will also have a Literacy Homework assignment coming home Monday, as well. Please remind the kiddos they need to return that assignment by Friday in order to earn their bonus recess at the end of the day.
In Math, we’ll continue to practice subtraction, and sprinkle in some review of addition. In my Math class, you can expect these homework assignments to come home during the week. Of course, these are subject to change if a lesson doesn’t go well, or I think we need more time to practice.
In Writing, the kids finally began to write their rough drafts for their dinosaur research last week. I anticipate we’ll begin the final draft towards the end of the week this week.
Lastly, the kids will hear the second lesson of our “Anti-Bullying” unit in the Second Step lessons. This week, the lesson focuses on how to report bullying when you witness it, or are the focus of bullying. There is a home practice page attached to the weekly email if you wanted to have a follow up discussion at home.
Thanks for reading and have a great week!
