Weekly Newsletter for November 13-17, 2017
Our focus question for our story, Get the Egg, is “what wild animals live in our neighborhood?” Students have really enjoyed talking about animals that they see in the wild! We are also discussing the main idea of a passage and supporting details. Our test for this story will be Friday, November 17th.
Our focus phonics skills for this story are short e and consonant blends. Our spelling words for this story are: men, red, step, ten, net, leg, jet, sled, wet, bed. The challenge words are: “saw” and “your.” Please continue to work on these words nightly with your child! The test for these spelling words will be Friday, November 17th.
In Math, we are continuing to discuss strategies that we can use to find addition and subtraction facts! We have learned that addition and subtraction facts can be written two ways, “up and down OR side to side!” In the coming weeks, I will be sending home an envelope with your child that will contain addition and subtraction flash cards. Please practice these flash cards with your child! It is important that these facts become automatic! Our Topic 4 test will be Monday, November 20th!
I am going to begin to send home Scholastic Book Order forms each month! If you are interested in ordering, please either send in a check (made payable to Scholastic Inc.) with the book order slip, or you may order online using our class code: MJJ8J. Our orders for November are due by Friday, November 17th.
I am also so proud to say that our class has won another “BINGO”’ on our 100’s chart for TEAMWORK! J As a reward, we will be having a stuffed animal day! Kiddos are invited to bring a stuffed animal with them to school this Friday, November 17th. Please be sure that this stuffed animal can fit into their book bag!
With cold and flu season among us, we are in need of tissues and hand sanitizer to keep those germs away! If you are willing to donate these items to our classroom, we would really appreciate it! J
