Report cards go home this Friday and we are now scheduling the parent teacher interviews for next week. Be sure to return the note with your time preferences as soon as possible so we can accomodate your schedule.
In writing, we are beginning to work on non-fiction. We have started writing "How To" pieces where the students give directions for something they know how to make or play. This week, we are going to begin an "All About" book. Students will have to select a topic that they know a lot about. Topics can range from dogs, to hockey, to their family. You might want to discuss topics with your child so they will have some ideas ready to go.
In math, we are working on our mental math strategies. This week we will focus on making ten (9 + 6 is the same as 10 + 5) and using addition to help solve subtraction questions.
