Hi Families! I just wanted to let you know to disregard the first three questions on tonight's homework. We will be doing that together tomorrow.
Have a great evening! I've loved working with all of your kids!

Spelling: Spelling tests are on Friday mornings. I try to get them corrected and sent home by the next Monday. Each week we will have 12 spelling words. We rarely use the challenge words from the reading series; but it is ok to have your child practice those. After I have given the students the 12 words they studied during the week, I have them write three words using the spelling pattern we practiced during the week. The three extra words are not graded but I look at them to see which students understand the spelling rule rather than memorizing the individual words.

Students have a main idea worksheet for homework tonight. The answers are posted on this page in case they need some help. This week's spelling list was sent home today.
The students counted money in math today, we are beginning a new story about space in reading and we started working on the first unit in our science book today.

Answers for today's reading homework. 
1. We know a lot about the moon.
2. Orbits the earth.; Reflects the light of the sun.; and Has craters.; are all correct.
3. Mars is a place we want to learn more about.
4. It is red.; and It once had water.; are acceptable answers.

The objective of today's math lesson was to show the students how to do the math boxes independently. Our reading time focused on reviewing the sounds of short vowels; and the comprehension skills of character traits, setting and prediction. We also did our first Daily Fix it during the grammar portion of our reading time.

Upcoming: Spelling Test and Library on Friday

With picture day today, our schedule was a little off; but we were able to finish math (counting money) and language arts. Your child should have a spelling list in their folder. They should also have some homework. Most students were able to finish the front page of their spelling work in school so they only have the back page to finish at home.

Scissors: The scissors I ordered for the kids are terribly hard to cut with. If you happen to have a chid's scissor we can have at school please send it with your child. I will also pick some up the next time I get to a store. Thank you!!
