This week is conference week. I look forward to meeting with you during our conference time/day (which you received from your homeroom teachers). Please bring any questions/concerns you would like to discuss. Also remember, this week is early release all week. Know how your student is going home.
In each subject, our focus will be:
2nd grade: Word problems using addition and subtraction
3rd grade: Word problems using addition, subtraction, and multiplication. Please have your child practice multiplication facts. This could be done through song, videos, or flashcards. You can google multiplication facts.
2nd grade: We will be looking at a program called Raz Kids. Another good program is called Starfall. You can have your child go to www.starfall.com from your computers at home. We will be working on reading through independent reading and small group with me.
3rd grade: We have started looking at the program Read 180/System 44. The students and I are very excited and can’t wait to get started in the program! They will also be able to access from home! More to come later on this.
Our writing focus this quarter is on expository/informational writing. We will begin with How to… writing. In addition, we will focus on adjectives and adverbs.
