Hello to everyone!
I hope everyone had a GREAT long weekend!! Another week down! We are definitely getting more into our routines and everything is going very nicely. We took our first round of tests on Friday and I was very impressed with how the class did overall. You will receive those tests back within the next few days with a grading explanation attached.
We began centers last week and the students have done great! Everyone was following the rules and getting their work done :).
The skills we are learning this week are:
Reading- Short i words (-in, -it, -iss word families) Keep on practicing those old and new
Grammar- Types of Sentences
Math- We will finish up chapter 1 addition(another test coming...)and moving into subtraction.
Science- We will continue the 5 senses
Social Studies- Communities and Ways we love America
Writing- Personal Narratives
Homework packets are coming home on Tuesday (please make sure they are returned completed on Friday!!) We are working on handwriting in class, but I could use your help at home also. If you see your child writing his/her letters backwards, please gently remind them how to form their letters and have them correct it. Working together will help your child break that habit :).
Have a fantastic week!!
