Parents, Family members and Friends,
We have had a wonderful day back! The students did an EXCELLENT job in remembering our class/school procedures and worked hard today! I'm proud of them, of their hard work, self motivation, work ethic, leadership, and ability to work together!
Here's what's on the horizon for the next few weeks:
*Assessments - These next two weeks, we will be assessing students on high frequency words, fluency, comprehension, math fluency and problem solving. (Report cards come out at the end of the month.)
We started talking about communities today. Our stories will focus communities (what places and who makes up a community). We will also be focusing on long vowels. This week we will focus on long i (all long vowels say their name). In writing, we are working hard on publishing our animal informational text.
In math we will be finishing up Module 2 (adding and subtracting strategies). Students will focus on solving math word problems. Students are required to "Read, Draw, Write." Students must read the word problem, show/draw their work, and write a statement to answer the question. Towards the end of this module, we will also be looking at units of a number; for example: 14 is the same as 1 ten and 4 ones.
Don't forget to check their class dojo charts daily. On the left side of the blog, you'll see upcoming events/important things to be aware.
As always, if you have any questions, comments or concerns please feel free to call, stop by, email or send a message via Class Dojo.
Thanks for all you do! :)
