Hi! I hope you had a good weekend! Last week we continued our Storytown reading program. Last week, we read a play called Neighborhood News and learned how to read a script aloud. We also reviewed our unit one spelling words and challenge words and took a test. This week we are reading an autobiography called Winners Never Quit and learning specific concepts about making predictions. Remember to encourage your child to do their 15 minutes of reading each day for extra reading practice during the other half of their day off. Thanks for your reading support!
Subtraction Strategies and Testing!
This week we are continuing our Envision math program by finishing our subtraction strategies learning unit. Last week we focused on how to make a ten when subtracting. This week we are solving two question, story problems, reviewing our subtraction strategies and taking a test to see what we have learned. Please encourage your child to use their newly learned addition and subtraction strategies at home by either solving math story problems or math facts to 20. Thanks for your math support!

Last week, your child took home their conference form for our fall conferences happening during the week of October 23rd-October 27th. These conferences are for kindergarten through fourth grade. Almost all of our conference forms have been returned. On Monday, some reschedule forms were sent home as well as new forms for those students who have not returned their original form. Hopefully we will get the final conferences scheduled in the next few days. Please, if you get another form….. give Mr. Webberley some other times if the first does not work. Remember that listing more than one other time helps as our conference schedule has limited openings. Thanks for your conference support!
Science-Solids, Liquids and Properties!
Last week we continued our science learning by focusing on solids. We focused on properties of solids and did a variety of activities to describe them. This week we will be building solid structures with solids using our new knowledge of what solids are made of. Later in the week we will be begin to learn about liquids by first looking at the properties of six bottles of liquids. These liquids had different materials in them and we came up with some vocabulary focusing on what they looked like and the actions that they made while moving around in a bottle. Stay tuned next week for more science updates!
Thanks and have a great week!
