Weekly Newsletter for 5/11/18

Dear Room 4 Families,

Thank you for all the lovely gifts, notes, and cards this week. I felt very appreciated!  Your children are so awesome and cute! I hope everyone has a great Mother’s Day weekend. We have been working very hard on a Mother’s Day surprise and your child is excited to give it to you this Sunday.

Progress reports were passed out in today’s Friday Folder. The reading grade is based on their reading level, so some grades may be lower than expected since I have not reassessed since trimester 2. I am waiting to assess for the last time so that your child can have as much time to progress before trimester 3 report cards.

Our field trip to CuriOdyssey is next Thursday. Please keep an eye out for important notifications next week regarding our field trip. If you are one of the approved field trip chaperones, I will be contacting you next week with information for Thursday.

If your child hasn’t turned in the field trip authorization form (permission slip), please turn in the fully completed form by Monday, 5/14/2018.

This week in English Language Arts…

We have continued with learning about compound words, ou/ow spelling, prefixes/root words/suffixes, and homophones. This week we started learning about how to use evidence from the text plus our schema to make inferences in the texts that we are reading.

This week in Writing…

We were split into our research groups, picked an animal, and have been taking notes about our animal for our All About project.

This week in Math…

We finished up our quick review on place value and started learning 3-digit addition with and without regrouping.

This week in Chinese…

We finished the weather lesson and the students are now able to describe the weather in Chinese clearly. The next 2 weeks we will move on to review what we have learned in trimester 3. In Writing we are working hard on our narrative writing, fine tuning and tweaking to make it better. In Social Studies, we have been rre-reading Mulan in Chinese. We will wrap it up next week and begin to learn how to read a weather chart.
