Last week, Mrs. Weitnauer came to visit our class. The children learned about her job as our school counselor. Mrs. Weitnauer was excited to meet our new students, and to remind our returning students about school counseling at Kincaid. Mrs. Weitnauer will be visiting our class every three weeks. Lesson topics will include kinfriendship, conflict resolution, study skills, responsibility, career awareness and safety skills. Please contact [email protected] or by phone (770) 578-7238 if you ever need to discuss your student with her.
Parent Night is Thursday, August 16th at 6:30. A few parents have said they can’t attend. No worries! I will post the PowerPoint to my blog on Friday! 🙂
Math: We are moving forward with place value. The students will be reviewing standard, word and expanded form of multi-digit numbers. We will also work on comparing numbers and review rounding!
Reading: We are getting more and more comfortable with Reader’s Workshop. The students are working on building their reading stamina and reading books that are “just right” for them. We encourage the kids to choose books that they like and are interested in. This helps develop a love of reading that will last and last! The kids are loving our read aloud novel, Wonder!
Writing/ELA: In Writer’s Workshop the kids will start focusing on their first piece of narrative writing. We will talk about expectations of writing, good behavior during writing time, and the many reasons writers write. We will begin our 2nd Mentor Sentence this week. We will take a sentence from Wonder and analyze it, look at parts of speech, and then expand it! This is a wonderful way to teach and learn grammar skills.
Science: We will wrap up our science unit by talking about the moon and reviewing moon phases. The students will have a quiz on Friday to show what they know!
Social Studies: No social studies this week. We will begin the Revolutionary War next week!
Thank you for another amazing week! I love all of my students so much!
