                               FALL CELEBRATION Classroom Party at 2:00 

November 12:  “Charlotte’s Web Day” 3:00-6:00 at the Greene County Fairgrounds

I have decided to reincorporate a Homework Assignment Sheet that must be signed nightly.  (Just like the one I used before.)  I think this is a good tool for communication between us and a great tool to ensure your receive materials from me and I receive materials from you.  Because we are now taking our spelling tests on computers, I will write your child’s spelling grade in the notes section of the Homework Assignment Sheet on Monday’s.  As previously discussed, if your child scores below an 80%, he/she will continue those words on the following week.  I will also note how your child performed on fry words.

 What we are learning:

Math:  We will begin Module 4 Addition and Subtraction Within 200 and Word Problems to 100.  This week we focus on addition with and without regrouping.

ELA:  We will read “The Three Little Pigs” and “The True Story of The Three Little Pigs” We will be comparing and contrasting these stories.

Writing:  We will begin writing a compare and contrast essay.
