Weekly Highlights
In reading workshop, we continued to develop good habits as
readers of nonfiction books. We learned how to find the just
right sound for words, how to find interesting things in our
books to share with others, reading with feeling, reading like a
writer, and finished the week off by learning about key words.
Students are learning so much about the world around them
from their nonfiction books!
For word study this week, we reviewed the meaning of a noun,
sorting familiar nouns, and even had a chance to write some
nouns on our own in sentences. We continued to review short
vowel sounds as well as sounds at the beginning and ends of
words.

Homework
Homework will come home on Fridays and is
due back the following Thursday.
This weeks homework:

Reading log (folder sent home with one


book from school)

Math review pages P109-110

Holiday traditions activity

In writing workshop, we continued to learn about writing


nonfiction books. We learned how to add fancy words to our
pieces to get our readers attention and interest as well as set
goals for ourselves on how to improve our writing. We finished
off the week by adding a Table of Contents to our pieces and
even began editing and revising for spelling, capital letters and
punctuation.

Reminders

During math, we finished the addition and subtraction to 10 and


beyond unit by reviewing strategies and tools we have learned
through various lessons and activities. At the end of the week
we completed our unit two assessment. I look forward to
sharing the results with you at conferences!

Please remember to send in an extra set


of clothing!

In social skills this week we learned how to show care and
