Happy New Year families!
I hope that everyone had a restful vacation. We are a few weeks away from grades closing (1/19) and report cards going home (1/26). Typically we do not conference at the end of the second quarter but if you have specific questions or would like to, I am happy to meet.
We continue to have spelling lists that correspond with our lesson in reading. You will find the list comes home with your student with a test date in the right hand corner. This is also the date the when homework is due. Please encourage your student to practice nightly with their spelling words.
We are currently in the middle of Unit 4 and are working on perimeter and area, along with recognizing polygons and special quadrilaterals. Typically there is nightly math homework. Some students can still use practice with their addition and subtraction facts, as well as multiplication.
We are working hard during literacy reading new stories, learning new vocabulary words, and analyzing the text in different ways. These ways may include sequencing, cause and effect, story structure, and character analysis. We also do a lot of writing answering our comprehension questions!
We are wrapping up our space unit in science. We will be talking about nutrition and immigration next. Stay tuned for our immigration simulation save the date. It is a must not miss event!
As always, let me know if you have any questions about anything happening in our classroom!
