November 16-20, 2015 Week 13

This is the last week before Thanksgiving!  Things are moving pretty fast!  We will continue to be busy learning new skills and adding some Thanksgiving activities in our routine.  Second six weeks report cards will go home on Thursday.  Please look over your child's report card, keep it and then sign and return the envelope on the back.  Please send envelope back to school on Friday. 

We had lots of activities last week!  First we kicked off the week with a home project where students had to disguise a turkey to look like something else.  WOW!  We had some creative ideas and bravo to you all!  Here are some of our wonderfully decorated hidden turkeys...

This week our reading story is "Honey Bees."  It is a story that tells facts about honey bees.  Our reading skills are to blend and read long e words spelled with e, ee; compare and contrast; discuss antonyms; rhyming words; and Saxon Phonics.

In Math we will continue numeration.  We will order and compare numbers.  We will use math vocabulary greater, less, and equal. We will also take out Unit 2 Math Benchmark Test.

In Science we will continue to explore energy and how objects move.

In Social Studies we will identify Goods and Services; and learn Thanksgiving facts and make crafts.

In class last week we identified the author's purpose for writing a story.  We created a character from the story to tell why we thought the author wrote the story. 

Everyday at our morning math meeting we skip count by 2's, 5's, and 10's.  We made a counting by 10's turkey!  Tell your child to sing the skip counting songs that we sing in class!

We explored how objects move by using magnets to see which objects could move by force.

We had our Thanksgiving meal last Thursday!  Students enjoyed their families joining them for lunch!  Yum Yum!

And finally a great big THANKS to Roland, Brooks, Kamdyn, Aubrey and Trinity for the books from the book fair!  You all know my love for reading! We start and end our day with a read aloud and these will be added to our class library. I will think of you every time I read them! 
 I love you!!!
