What Are We Learning? Ask your child to tell you about..

Math: Money

Reading: Unit 3 Week 6 Unit Testing

We are using Word Books to help the students learn sight words and vocabulary words to use in their writing. Each student has their own copy that they keep in their desks. Many words are already in the book, but there is also ample room to write any additional words they would like to use in any writing they do, from journal entries, to writing assignments, and even on tests! The goal is to increase their personal lexicons to give them the confidence and tools to go further in their writing with each new writing endeavor.

Handwriting: Cursive!!!

Spelling/Phonics: long ‘u’ sound

Grammar…verb ‘have’

Science: Extreme Weather and natural disasters

Social Studies: Geography & Culture


Supplies: We need more tissues and pre-sharpened pencils!!!! thank you!!!!!
