Hopefully you all have seen the Turkey Project, which went home in the students' folders last Wednesday. Please let me know if you have any questions. The project is due on Monday, November 18th. While you may certainly help your child complete this project, please make sure that he/she is fully involved in the creation.
Here's what we were working on in the classroom last week:
Reading : We learned about another decoding strategy - Chunk the Skunk! Ask your child how Chunk the Skunk helps readers read tricky words.
Writing : We continued talking about the writing process last week. We talked about the importance of re-reading a piece once you've finished writing it in order to make sure it makes sense.
Phonics : There was no word wall homework last week because there were only 2 days of school. Word wall homework will only be given when there are four or five days of school in a given week. Thanks for your help with the homework so far!
Math : Last week, we explored number models. Have your child tell you what a number model is! We went over addition and subtraction number models and number stories.
Sorry, no pictures from last week!
