Weekly Newsletter for 5/12/17

Dear Room 4 Families,

A big thank you to all of the wonderful chaperons who helped our Room 4 students with our animal research at CuriOdyssey yesterday. Your child had so much fun! This week your child has been working on a Mother’s Day surprise guaranteed to make you “explode” with happiness! As the school year is coming to a close, we are very busy learning everything that we need to be ready for third grade.

This week in English Language Arts we have been applying our knowledge of character’s point of view and character traits to identify in various texts how people have different personalities and perspectives towards the same situation. We have been continuing with researching our All About animal for our writing by learning about how to determine important facts, searching for information about diet, predators, habitats, and also learning about classification.

In math, we are wrapping up our measurement and data unit and we will be going back to revisit addition and subtraction with regrouping…this time with 3-digit numbers! After that, we will be learning multiplication and division concepts by learning that multiplication is just repeated addition that can be explained with an array, and that division is the opposite!

We will have a few more assessments for the trimester 3 report cards in the coming weeks.

As a reminder, the Famous American Biography Project is due on Monday, May 22nd and your child needs to be ready to present themselves as their famous person during that week. This will be part of their listening and speaking grade on their report card. Please look at the last weekly newsletter for the link with the project details and grading rubric.

Here are next week’s homework links:

Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Mother’s Day!

-Ms. You
