Week of October 23rd

Hi 214 Families!  Please turn in your permission slips for our October 31st field trip.  The cost is $15 and open to all chaperones.  Picture day forms went home last week- let me know if you another form.  October 27th is our school assembly and students will be performing a song with Señor Walters.  Please make sure your child is dressed in red , white and blue.

What is happening this week…

Reading Workshop:  we are going to finish up our unit on realistic fiction and begin informational reading next week. We will continue to work on authors purpose and support our ideas with text evidence.  Students will receive a new set of word work words tomorrow and will be assessed on Friday.

Writers Workshop: Last week we published our personal narratives.  This week we will continue writing narratives but focus on stories connected to people who are important to us- using that as a strategy to generate story ideas and include lots of details.  The kids are really excited about this project.

Math:  We will continue learning and practicing strategies (doubles facts, combination of 10, and turn around facts) for addition.  Monday and Tuesday we will be working on an open response math problem. In class we have been working on explaining our thinking with problem solving. We practice this by partner math talks and writing steps.

Social Studies:  we will be talking about local and national government and the process of voting within a democracy.  Last week we made 3 branches of government models and discussed the difference between each.

Science: We have begun our engineering unit!  We will begin by reading story about a student in Nepal who needs to engineer a bridge for his community.
