This is our first official blog post of the year! I will continue to send updates on the weekly homework and update the blog every few weeks.
Language Arts/Reading: CKLA Unit One focusing on Classic Tales is now finished and we are moving onto Classification of Animals. We had a wonderful time writing opinion pieces and will continue on with that in Unit Two. We will also be including our science topic of Living & Non-Living with this unit.
Next week we will start spelling. I have listed the words in the right column on this blog and will also include them on next week's homework. Please review the words with your child during the week as they will be tested on Friday.
Math- We will be finishing up Chapter one next week and will have the test next Tuesday. Chapter Two is "Interpreting Data" and will have the students working on different kinds of graphs. We have also worked on the following times tables: 0's, 1's, 2's, 5's, 9's, 10's, 11's and 12's. I have had a few parents mention that they would like to help with the pass-offs. Starting in two weeks on Wednesday, September 28th, I would like to have parent volunteers come in from 8:50-9:30. If you would like to do this, please email me and let me know. Also, acquiring a some flashcards for your child to practice would be very helpful. If you need me to print a set at school, let me know.
Art and Music: Students attend one 45 min. art session a week and two half-hour sessions a week.
Cursive/Keyboarding: Students continue to practice their lowercase cursive letters. Next week we will plan to start our Keyboarding unit.
This is our basic plan. Please email me with any questions or concerns that you have.
