Week of 11/26-11/30
Happy Thanksgiving Break!
The class had an awesome week before break and are hopefully already enjoying the time off!
If you would like to continue to have your child practice reading and math next week, I would encourage you to ask them about Freckle. Freckle is a website, or app, that we have set up and use daily in our classroom. Each student has their own personal account that gives them individualized lessons and practice based on their performance every time they use the program. If you are not already utilizing it at home, all you have to do is type in Freckle.com. Their student login is their first name and then first initial of their last name. The password is ex7hsq. This is a great way for them to read and practice their math facts in an engaging way. It is not a requirement to use Freckle at home too, just a suggestion. :)
We have also posted some reading passages and corresponding comprehension questions under our reading class link. Feel free to use those resources at home, too.
When we return from break we will be learning a new green pattern and red words. Please look for that in their planners after the break. We will also be starting a new social studies unit, The Constitution, and science unit, Simple Machines. The class is eager to start these fun topics!
We have a lot happening when we return, so here are the important dates:
11/28 = PJ Birthday Celebration for November Birthdays
11/29 = Field Trip to the DMNS
(Please be sure to sign and return the permission slip that was sent home. Also, please send in the $7 for the trip. Students will need to bring a sack lunch and wear their tie-dye shirt that day.)
Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions. I hope you and your families enjoy the extra time with friends and family and have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!
