Library time is every Tuesday. Please have your child bring their books back on Tuesday, if they wish to check out new books.
Digital Storytelling: Students are continuing to utilize the digital cameras to create stories about the school and gardens. I also encourage them to write about their lives outside of school and to bring in pictures or artifacts to use in class. We’re always looking for those writing opportunities that happen every day.
Homework: We are focusing on multi-step math problems involving both addition and subtraction. We use grocery shopping as an example a lot in class. Defining what a total and running total is has become essential in solving story problems involving money. Discuss these concepts while shopping.
Book Reports: The book report sheets are included in today’s homework as well as in-class examples we have done whole class. From these worksheets the students will then create a written report next week in class. We have spent quite a bit of time discussing summarizing a story, identifying the climax and problems/solutions within stories. Please assist your child in identifying and writing about these story elements. I remind them that a lot of you write reports, in some form, for your jobs and that it is a life-long skill that they will be developing.
