Weather Unit: We are in the middle of our weather unit and will be moving our focus towards weather current events from around the world and detrimental weather and its effects. I have posted our guiding questions for this unit on my webpage. These are what guide us in our learning about weather.
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.
I am continuing to upload your child’s stories to my YouTube channel weekly. If you do not want your child’s name or work listed please notify me. This also applies to my webpage postings which include photos of the class.
Homework: The students have created an idea map on a type of weather. Please have them use it to construct their writing. Please review your child’s writing checking for adherence to the idea map, writing conventions, sentence fluency and structure.
There is also math work on missing number problems, money and addition and subtraction. Please have your continue to read and take the quizzes on RAZ-Kids.com, count, add and subtract money at home. Thank you for your support in these areas.
