What's News-Reading a Script!
Hi! This week we are reviewing all of our theme unit concepts as well as reading a non-fictional, documentary story about A Trip to the Fire Station. It should be a fun week as we read this documentary and review important reading, spelling, phonics and writing concepts we have learned while completing our second theme book. Remember to encourage your child’s reading abilities by having them read 15 minutes at home each day. Thanks for your reading support!
This week students are continuing to learn more grammar concepts to help us when we read and write. Last week we continued learning about adjectives by using and identifying them in sentences. This week we are continuing to focus on adjectives so that we better understand how these types of words to add details to our writing. We will finish adjectives and begin to learn about pronouns at the end of the week. Remember to encourage your child to share their grammar knowledge at home either verbally or on paper in sentences within their narrative writing samples if they have a chance! Thanks for your grammar support!

Last week we continued our science learning how liquids can be affected by solids as we put various objects in liquids to see what would happen. Last week we also began sorting solids by sorting seeds. This week we will continue our seed sorting experiment as we compare the different sizes of seeds by using our metal filters to separate these solids by size. Ask your child about our fun science learning times today.
Last week your child continued our Bridges math program. Last week we continued unit 3. We first learned how to count numbers quickly by quickly counting bundles of craft sticks in groups of 10’s and 1’s. We also broke numbers down into 10’s and 1’s to add two, two digit numbers. At the end of the week, we learned a new game called five in a row where we add two, two digit numbers and see if the answer is on our game board much like playing math bingo.
This week we are continuing unit 3. We will first learn how to count forward and backward on a number line while focusing on how much older people are in our families. We will also use a number line to model and solve three, double digit story problems involving length and height. At the end of the week we will learn a new game called Hit the Zone! Stay tuned next week for more math news!
Have a great week! Mr. Webberley
