Weekly Newsletter 10/31/13

Dear Room 4 Families,

Thank you for all of your generous donations for our Halloween celebration. A BIG thank you to all of the wonderful parents that helped things run smoothly. Room 4 students loved eating lunch in class and participating in 6 center activities. Your child made several Halloween crafts, learned about the life cycle of a pumpkin, used Halloween words for Chinese bingo, and had lots of fun! If you took any pictures and would like to share them with Room 4 parents, please e-mail them to me. If you would not like your child’s picture placed in an online album to be shared with the class and linked on the webpage, please let me know.

NO SCHOOL on Friday 11/1.

English Language Arts
This Week’s Story: One Grain of Rice
Working on: Writing a paragraph, possessive and plural nouns, adjective, verb, parts of speech, inferencing, and using context clues.
Next week’s spelling words: https://graceyou.com/2nd-2-5-african-american-inventors/

Currently on: Topic 6 – Mental Addition. Your child should be comfortably adding and subtracting numbers up to 20 (without using fingers!). We will be starting two digit addition and subtraction, which involves regrouping.

Current Textbook Lessons: Shuang Shuang 2.6
Things we did:

  • Language arts activities to boost character recognition
  • Learned 2 new songs.
  • Flashcards and reading games
  • Practiced our dictation words, different variations of reading aloud, writing, singing songs, searching for our vocabulary words in our text.

Check your child’s backpack for returned papers. Take note of anything with a check mark or an “incomplete” on it, as your child needs additional help or practice. Workbook packets are often marked with a check mark because there are pages that were not completed correctly, skipped, or not covered in class. This is good practice at home if you are looking for enrichment activities.

Volunteers, etc.

Our classroom could use some: white cardstock, gallon sized ziplock bags, two-prong brads,  tissue boxes, 30 per sheet Avery address labels, and reams of white paper.

Have a wonderful weekend!

-Ms. You
