Reading News-Fantasy Fiction!
Hi! This week we are doing another lesson from our Storytown reading program. This week we will be reading a fantasy story called Serious Farm. This story is about talking animals on a farm who try to help the farmer not be serious. This story has made up characters and a make-believe plot focusing on the fantasy genre. It should be a fun week as we read this story and do activities to help build our reading skills. Also, make sure you look at your child’s spelling test/practice packets that are coming home today. Thanks for your reading support!
Topic 11- Three Digit Addition/Subtraction!
This week we are continuing our district adopted Envision math program completing topic eleven. Topic 11 focuses on strategies to help students understand how to add and subtract three digit numbers. This week we will be completing lessons 11.4-11.8. All of the lessons this week focus on subtracting three digit numbers using models, breaking problems apart or just doing the basic algorithm with regrouping. Please challenge your child by giving them larger subtraction problems for practice at home this week.

Writing News-Informational Writing-How Bees make Honey!
Last week we completed a how to paper focusing on how honeybees make honey. During this time we took notes and then used our notes to complete the steps it takes for a honeybee to make honey. We also have been making a pollination poster sharing the pollination process with pictures. Both of these projects will be coming home soon for you to see how we used writing to learn about the pollination process. This week, students are beginning their own “how to” informational writing sample. Stay tuned for weekly updates in our newsletter focusing on our informational writing progress! Encourage your child to use their informational writing skills at home using hanks for your writing support!
