Weekly Newsletter for 3/7/14

Dear Room 4 Families,

Our field trip is coming up in less than 2 weeks. Please make sure that you have signed the field trip permission slip and have made arrangements for bringing your car seats to school on the day of the field trip if you cannot bring them to school yourselves.

Our Room 4 students have been learning about the plant cycle this week in conjunction with the story we have been studying this week in English Language Arts, The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle. To go along with this theme, we have been studying the art style of Eric Carle and are in the process of making our own flower diagrams in his art style. We have also been working on finishing our final drafts of our narrative stories by publishing them into books.

English Language Arts

Working on: closed syllables, pronouns, plural, drawing conclusions, using diagrams and labels, and publishing our writing.

We are currently on Topic 15 – Place Value and will take the test next week. Our next topic is on money, so you can start preparing your child by reviewing the names of coins and how much they are worth.

Current Textbook Lessons: Shuang Shuang 3.1
Things we did:

  • Learned how to write our dictation words in stroke order
  • Combined characters to create words
  • Learned about the plant cycle and plant parts.
  • Learned and used the vocabulary for prepositions (ie. this/that) and antonyms (ie. big/small)
  • Using flash cards to review and maintain our past dictation words.
  • Practiced our dictation words, different variations of reading aloud, writing, singing songs, searching for our vocabulary words in our text.
