Week of 8/28:

ELA: We're beginning our Stone Fox book this week.  We are also analyzing/learning about story elements and characters in particular.  Students are excited to see what our book is about.  In addition, we are beginning grammar with subjects and predicates.  We will have a short quiz over this on Friday.  Lastly, we are excited about writing this year! We will begin our year with New Year's Resolutions for our writing and the begin to develop a small moment story (narrative) about our life.  

Math: We are continuing to review/learn 3-digit addition and subtraction.  Students will be tested over these concepts on Friday, 8/31.  In addition, we have made it through our first two weeks of timed quizzes.  Students will be tested over their "2s" facts on Thursday this week.  

Science: We are learning all about the scientific method over the next few weeks! We are so excited about all of the hands-on inquiries we are going to be doing throughout the year. 

Social Studies: We are continuing to examine the regions and each of their characteristics. We will begin investigating these qualities through literature this week.

Please don't forget we have an opportunity to earn some volunteer hours by bringing in stamped postcards over the next month! :) 

T-shirt forms with payment for field trip shirts are due Friday 8/31.
