This Week’s Learning Focus:
Reading: We will continue to look at the plot in stories. Students will use a variety of graphic organizers to record their ideas and organize their thoughts. We will also integrate social studies by learning about important historical Americans.

Writing: We will revise our stories in meaningful ways by looking for precise and specific language that will make a big impact for the reader. 

Spelling: A new spelling sort will come home on Tuesday. Please make sure all of your child’s spelling homework is completed in his/her spelling notebook. Thursday evening, please make sure your child is gluing the sort into his/her notebook.

Math and Science: We counted our pumpkin seeds. Several students reached into the 500s! Now we are beginning subtraction with up to three digits. Practicing basic facts and seeing the connection between addition and subtraction will help all students process the regrouping in subtraction. This is a hard concept for children to wrap their heads around, so be patient. (We will move slow with this one and do some practice and review.)
