Weekly Newsletter for November 20-24, 2017
In our new story, “Animal Park,” our question is “what can we learn from wild animals by watching them?” As a class we will also be discussing cause and effect.
Our phonics skills for this story are the short u sound and final consonant blends. Our spelling words are: crust, bump, jump, must, just, dust, trust, dusk, hunt, and lump. Our challenge words are: “many” and “into.”
We will be taking our Topic 4 test today! Tomorrow we will begin Topic 5: Addition Facts to 20. Please continue to practice the math fact flash cards that can be found in your child’s OWL folder! We will continue to add cards to the envelope periodically so please be sure to return the envelope daily!
With our month of November winding down, please continue to read with your child and document their reading on their AR paper! Those that complete their November AR paper will receive a Pizza Hunt coupon for a free personal size pizza. Remember if your child is reading a chapter book, you can break that chapter book into multiple spaces! Another great resource for the AR reading log are the decodable readers! These readers reinforce the phonics skills we are focusing on in class! November AR reading logs will be collected Thursday, November 30th.
Our November PBIS reward will be on Wednesday, November 22nd! Part of our reward that day is game day! Students are allowed to bring in an electronic device this day with your permission! Please be sure that devices are charged and that all games are school appropriate!
