- Mighty Moose: Congratulations to our Mighty Moose, Chris!
- Literacy Update – Students are editing their onomatopoeia poems this week. Ask your child to share all or a part of their poems with you! Students have been reading chapter books, which book was your child reading? Remind your child to study their spelling words! Some students have a modified list; modified lists are highlighted in yellow.
- *If your child goes with Mr. Schmidt for literacy you should see spelling words coming home on Monday
- Math Update – This week your child is exploring tiling rectangles with same-sized squares. Examples of tiling can be found throughout your daily life. You may find square tiles covering the kitchen floor, the bathroom wall, or a ceiling. You may see squares filling a game board or a wall calendar. We have practiced recognizing and drawing shapes by paying attention to the number of sides and angles they have.
-Spelling and Reading: Please practice your spelling words and reading fluency each week. As a reminder, we will have a spelling test each Friday. It is not necessary for students to return the Superkids spelling or fluency pages to school.
Help us keep our classroom a dedicated “Learning Zone.” Remind your child to leave toys and chewing gum at home. We have had problems with gum getting in our carpet and student notebooks. Thank you for your support!
