Greetings from Room 116!
What a wonderful week we had. Here are some of the highlights:
ELA: We studied the vowel/consonant/silent e spelling pattern and worked on irregular plurals. We continued to practice reading roles in our mystery groups. We also enjoyed hearing and writing Halloween stories.
Math: We worked on 6’s, 7’s, 8’s, and 9’s facts, learning a variety of strategies. We also took our Mid-Module 3 assessment. Students demonstrated sound understanding of concepts.
Science/SS: We continued our cranberry bounce experiments and discussed wet and dry harvesting techniques.
Other: In Computers, we listened to online books and posted summaries while also commenting on others posts. During Calmer Choice, we discussed ways to focus on and appreciate the many positive things in our lives. We are truly blessed.
Please remember to set your clocks ahead as we “fall forward” this weekend. There will be no school next Tuesday (11/8) due to Election Day/Teacher Professional Day or Friday (11/11) in honor of Veteran’s Day.
P.S. Please remember that students should continue to read 20-30 minutes of self-selected text and review their x3, x4, x6, x7, x8, and x9 facts as part of nightly homework.
