Weekly Report - Week of December 2-6, 2019
I hope you had a wonderful and restful Thanksgiving holiday! I am excited to see the students tomorrow.
On Friday, December 20th our class will have our Christmas lunch before leaving for Christmas break. I will order pizza and purchase drinks and other items for lunch. I am asking that each parent donate $5 to help cover the cost of the pizzas and other party items. Please send in money by Friday, December 13th so I can get the order placed and have enough time to purchase the other items.
Below you will find information about our classroom/school happenings as well as what students will be working on this week. Please let me know if you have any questions. Have a wonderful week!
Here is what we are working on this week:
Math: This week students will begin learning about division. Please continue to review multiplication facts with your child. Students will have another fact quiz on Friday. Please review the assigned facts nightly with your child. All math homework should have work shown. Homework that is missing work will result in a loss of 10 points.
Reading: Our focus this week will be determining the main idea of a text and finding supporting details. Students should be completing reading homework nightly and answering the assigned chapter book questions. Questions should be restated in complete sentences in the student’s reading journal. Questions that are not restated in complete sentences will result in a loss of 10 points.
Science: We are continuing with our unit on the human body. Our focus this week will be learning about the joints and muscles. Students will have a joints and muscles quiz on Friday, December 13th.
Social Studies: This week, we will continue our unit of government. Students will learn about the three branches of government – executive, judicial, and legislative.
Word Study: Spelling words this week are “ore, oar, air, are, and ure” sounds. Topics this week are helping/linking verbs and correctly using I and Me in sentences. Please make sure students are studying their words nightly for their spelling test on Friday.
