Hi! This week we are continuing our Storytown reading program. This week we are continuing our Storytown reading program by beginning theme 4 and reading and focusing on a fictional story from lesson 16 called Mr. Putter and Tabby Write a Book.

Math Update-Finishing Measurement and Larger Place Value!
This week we are continuing our district adopted Bridges math program. Today your child took our unit 4 test on measurement. Tomorrow, we will begin Unit 5 which focuses on larger place value skills. We will have a pre-assessment test and then begin activities that have us counting to 1,000. We will be reading a place value story by Helen Nolan called How much?, How Many?, How Far to 1,000. Later in the week we will be using and making a variety of models to help us understand numbers to 1,000 with craft sticks and base ten pieces. Please feel free to ask your child to explain what they have been learning about this week. Stay tuned next week for more math information.

Writing News-Opinion Writing-Book Reviews!
This week we are focusing on more opinion writing and creating an opinion about a story we read. Opinions can be shared when telling someone what you like and do not like about a story. During this time, we will be focusing on having three reasons and examples to support those reasons along with an introduction and conclusion. Later in the week, students will be choosing their own story from our classroom library and share their opinion about this book through writing.
Ask your child about their writing and have them share all of the reasons and examples supporting their opinion about our group story as well as a story that they choose from our classroom library. Also, please remember to encourage your child to do opinion writing whenever they have a chance at home. Thanks for your writing support!
Mr. Webberley's Classroom Valentine Party!

If your child is interested in passing out Valentines, they may bring them on this Friday. Also, if your child would like to bring treats they are welcome to do so. Please make sure they are pre-packaged or wrapped so they can be easily taken home if not eaten.
