I hope you enjoyed the beautiful weekend.
Happy Veterans Day and a huge THANK YOU to all of our military that served and continue to serve to keep us safe and free.
We have a field trip to the Cobb County Safety Village coming up. More details will come, but I need to get a lunch count ASAP. Will you all please click on this link and fill out your child’s lunch choice for our field trip day? LUNCH FORM
I think everyone enjoyed our “Sleepover” celebration on Friday. The students were all snuggled up watching a movie and drinking hot chocolate.
Thank you to Mrs. Wallace for being our mystery reader on Friday. It is always neat to see your child’s reaction when you walk in the door! If you haven’t signed up, please do. It really is a special moment and the students love to hear other people read to them.
Thank you to our volunteers (Mrs. Fujiwars, Mrs. Wallace and Mrs. Thigpen) on Friday for making our Veteran’s Day display look amazing!
Here is our curriculum for this week:
Reading: Continuing our nonfiction reading using Story Works to identify text features and nonfiction structures. We will also continue reading Three Times Lucky.
Grammar – Continuing frequently confused words – (your, you’re; then, than, affect, effect, its, it’s)
Math: The students need a bit more time with 2 digit multiplication so we will be rsiting 2 digit by 2 digit multiplication and adding in word problems. I will retest on Friday to only those that did not receive an A on the assessment last week. For those that have already mastered the standard, I will be moving them on to 3 digit by two digit and three digit by three digit.
Science – Continuing Stars and Planets – Comparing and contrasting stars and planets and looking at how advancements in technology have allowed us to know more about our galaxy.
Writing – Continuing our nonfiction pieces – writing an introduction and conclusion and picking nonfiction text features to add to our pieces.
No vocabulary this week.
