This Week’s Learning Focus:
Reading: We are integrating social studies into Reader's Workshop a couple of days this week by reading American biographies. We will be asking, "Why is this person influential to American history?" Students are learning to highlight important details, identify new or interesting vocabulary, and determine the main idea. We will also continue to learn about story elements. This week, we will be determining the problem and resolution as part of the story's plot. 

Writing: Students will be learning craft moves from any mentor author. They will learn that writers don’t just try something once and give up. Writers are bold and can try new things, even if they’re not perfect.  

Spelling: A new spelling sort will be coming home on Monday. 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: We will continue to solve subtraction problems with regrouping.

Upcoming Reminders:
* Grandparents Day responses need to be emailed to by Nov. 16th if you would like it to be included in the Grandparents Day Chapel.
* Grandparents Day is November 23rd! School will be dismissed at Noon.

*No school Thursday, November 24th – Monday, November 28th.
