What Did We Do This Week?

This week in reading, we read a fantasy story about a trip to the lost & found. We worked on vocabulary, using commas in dates and places, story sequence, base words, dictionary entries, and identifying fragments vs. sentences. We also looked at Chinese writing.  In math, we looked at the values of coins, had a chapter test & rounding & patterns quizzes, worked on addition properties, problem solving (estimation vs exact answers) and estimating sums.  We made Yucky Duckies for our Halloween carnival booth. Thank you to the wonderful families who volunteered to run the booth! We had an art project making crayon & watercolor pumpkins.  In PE we played Capture the Cone.  Thank you to all of the families who have sent in money from the Jog-A-Thon…there’s still a little time for prizes, so please get those packets in as soon as you can!

What Did We Do This Week?

In reading, we worked on making inferences. In writing, we worked on spelling, syllables, classifying sentences, and finished our narratives.  In math, we worked on problem solving, comparing numbers and ordering numbers.  We also compared communities of San Francisco and Phoenix.  We also had our first field trip! We have been studying communities, so we went to the police department and City Hall to learn more about what happens in our community of Central Point.

Conference Paper

I sent home a conference paper attached to this week’s Friday note, and of course, I made a mistake. So sorry!

On the paper, I am asking for you to give me your preferences for times to meet for conferences. I accidentally wrote “Tuesday, Novemeber 23”. Oops. I meant Tuesday, November 22. I’m so sorry for any confusion this may have caused.

Thanks so much!
