Weekly Newsletter for 1/22/16

Dear Room 4 Families,

Your child had a busy week learning! This week we have been working hard on our mental math strategies. We have been working with the concept of friendly tens and decomposing numbers. Your child is working on word problems and applying multiple problem solving strategies as well.

This week in English, your child is working on rebuilding stamina for our literacy centers as well as working on predicting, inference, context clues, asking and answering questions, and the difference between main idea and details. Your child is learning to tell the difference between a fact and an opinion along with justifying their opinion with specific examples for their opinion writing unit.

Progress reports were sent home today. Please check your child’s backpack.

Next week is a regular school week. The following few weeks has a varying schedule. A green half-sheet with the various minimum days and no school days has been sent home. You can view these days on the Google Calendar.

Please remember that Flat Stanley is due on Monday!

Here are next week’s homework links:

Have a great weekend!

-Ms. You
