 Class News:

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a fun and restful winter break! Thank you so much for my Christmas gifts. I love all of the generous gift cards, sweet treats, soaps, journals, and coffee mugs. Your kindness and thoughtfulness are very much appreciated.  

Daily Folders

Please remember to have your child bring his/her blue folder to school every day. 

Please check your child’s “Daily Folder. 

Homework/ Daily Folder

Every student should be reading an AR book(s) of his/her choice weekly so he/she can meet his/her goal for the second nine weeks. AR points are earned by taking tests at school on books he/she has read on his/her level or above and earning at least 80%. Students can take AR tests on books from our classroom library, school library, public library, or books from home as long as they are AR and on or above his/her reading level. Please remember to sign your child’s AR weekly reading log located in the back of the blue daily folder. 

Peek at This Week and Next Week

Reading- Our class will start U3W1. Our class will be focusing on how the Earth’s forces affect us. We will be talking about forces that we can observe. The skills for u3w1 are rereading, author’s purpose, similies, and action verbs. This week’s words contain the long /a/ spelling. The u3w1 comprehension, spelling, writing and vocabulary assessments are scheduled for Wednesday, January 29th.

Math- We will continue chapter 6 on learning how to add and subtract 3 digit-numbers. Including regrouping ones, tens, and hundreds.

Please remember to practice a quick recall of addition and subtraction facts using numbers 1-20. It is extremely important your child knows how to recall basic facts up to the number 20. I would recommend spending 10 minutes each day doing math flashcards. 

 Science/Social Studies- Begin learning about solids, liquids, and gasses.
