Dear 209 Families,

 

Reminders:

PICTURE DAY ON MONDAY, September 28. 

 

Please send money for Handwriting Without Tears & Time For Kids subscriptions (yellow sheet sent home Wednesday)

 

Homework:

Wednesday Math – Wednesday mornings I will have some ‘homework help’ time in the classroom to support any students not sure about certain problems. 


Spelling – Students should have brought home their second word sort.  Any practice at home would be great for their spelling growth.

 

Reading – Students should be using the pink September calendar to track their reading for the month.  30 minutes for 3rd graders and 40 minutes for 4th graders. 

 

Math Facts – Students keep practicing the basic math facts for our Tuesday Timings! 

 

Curriculum:

Math – As we continue with number sense in math we are also working on interpreting data.  Students had great opportunities to practice interpreting data.    

 

Reading – Students picked out books from our classroom library and we have been working on reading stamina and doing activities while reading (summarizing, identifying characters & setting).  We have also been reading “Monkey See, Money Zoo” as a class and doing interactive reading activities as a class.   

 

Word Work (Spelling) – Students spent much time with their word sort this week to prepare for Thursday’s spelling test.  Friday they should bring home their new word sort.    

 

Writing – Students started writing in their writing journals!  We talked about taking big moments and narrowing them down to small moments to write personal narratives.  Students are also working on typing a final draft of their minion paper/project!     

 

Garden Lesson – Attached is information about these sessions.    

 

Wednesday Wonderings – Every Wednesday students will have about 30 minutes to research anything they are wondering about.  After coming to conclusions students then will have the opportunity to share their findings with the class.  

 

Please call, email, send a note or drop by with any questions you may have.
