Week of November 6th

Happy November 214 Families!

We will be taking a field trip 11/21 to The Old Town School of Folk Music for a pow wow.  The cost of the trip is $10.00.  Please get permission slips in early! We are also still in need of snack so we would love any donations.  Thank you to parents who have already contributed for the month of November.

The end of quarter 1 was this past Thursday and report card pick up will be November 15th.

This week…

Math:  We will begin Unit 3 in Everyday Math! This week we will cover 3-1 (2 days), 3-2, 3-3, 3-4.  At home, please continue to practice counting money and subtraction and addition facts.  Family letter covering the unit will go home Monday.

Reading Workshop: We are starting our informational reading unit!  At the start of the unit, we will orient ourselves to the different parts of nonfiction books and pay attention to details.  Students should still be reading their independent reading books at night and filling out their reading logs.  They should be reading an hour a day so it is necessary that they read at home at home as well so they build fluency and practice reading skills.

Writing Workshop:  To support our informational unit in reading workshop will begin our informational writing unit this week as well.  Students will learn procedural writing incorporating our science unit and will also make informational books. We will study mentor texts and learn how to write like a scientist.  This will be a big departure from our personal narratives which I urge kids to continue writing at home because they enjoyed doing it so much in class.  Our word work words from last week will carry over to next week.

Social Studies:  Due to the field trip and shortened week we were unable to wrap up our government study but we will do so this week.  After that we will begin a unit on Native Americans.

Science:  Kids are in the middle of performing an investigation on building support beams to anchor a building into the ground using models and core samples.  We made a prediction about what layer of the Earth would be the most supportive.  Most guessed bedrock…..
