In social studies, we are exploring the Western Movement in the 1800s and the concept of migration. I am sending home a letter this week that will be homework in social studies.

Also a message about conferences from our PTA

Hello Lindbergh Families,
Due to our very welcome (or unwelcome for some) snow day….and the cancelling of conferences, we are going to continue as planned with our meal schedule for conferences.  So tomorrow, just follow the dates of the signup genius and when conferences are rescheduled we will repost about the other meal.  Thank you if you have already signed up, if you haven’t but would like to bring something feel free to check it out and sign up.  Also, the teachers always welcome any treats, so don’t feel like you can’t bring it in just because it isn’t on the sign up.  As always, thank you all so very much for your time, donations and in helping keep our teachers fed on these very, very long conference days.  Don’t forget PTA meeting, Tuesday, November 19th 7pm in the cafeteria.
 Kind Regards, Danielle

It was great seeing everyone at the Holiday Boutique this weekend!
Here is a look at our week:

ELA/Writing: In writing, we are still producing opinion writing. This week, students are researching on their own and starting their own rough draft stories. In ELA, we are focusing on identifying text features in nonfiction text and discussing how text features help readers. *Reading logs are being sent home this week and need to be colored in nightly* We just got an update on Book-it (a reading program that is sponsored by Pizza Hut) and I was waiting to get their reading logs so we can start the process! There is a reward that happens when students read nightly for the whole month. This should encourage more reading and accountability with students! Keep checking to see book bags are being taken home nightly as well.

Spelling (Week 11): Our spelling tests will be on Friday. (Unless there is a short week/ days off). You can always find our words on SpellingCity weekly for extra practice. Students have been graphing their spelling progress in their LIM Binders and the tests are sent home graded on Mondays.
Week 11: (Please encourage studying at home, I have noticed a big decline in spelling scores overall the last couple weeks!)
1. conductor
2. harbor
3. cheddar

7. collar
8. aviator
9. grammar
10. guitar

15. unit

Math: We are working on area, perimeter, and multiplication this week. We have learned formulas for both area and perimeter. Encourage your child to use different formulas for perimeter on their homework! Our goal is to complete lessons 2-4 this week!

Science/Social Studies: In science, we are learning about electricity this week and we get the opportunity to create an LED flashlight using our knowledge of energy/transfer. In social studies, we are moving to discussing immigration/migration in and outside of the United States.

PBIS Reward Celebration

Monday, November 4th

The October reward is playing games with friends.  Students in grades K-2 may bring in board games from home, but please NO ELECTRONIC GAMES!   Make sure to label the games with your child’s name. Also, only send in games that your child already knows how to play (suggestions include: checkers, chess, Memory, Connect 4, Sorry, Candyland, Uno, Jenga).  Keep in mind the reward is 30 minutes long, so help your child choose an appropriate game that can be played in that time.

Students in grades 3-5 have received permission to bring in their “electronics” as their game choice. The older students are very excited about this privilege!   Students may bring in DS games, iPods, MP3 players, tablets, etc. at their own risk.  We expect that students will only be playing “school appropriate” games.  Students who do not wish to bring in electronics may bring in board games.

Thank you.

Keep encouraging your child to follow “The Lindbergh Way!”

We had a great presentation from DTE yesterday! Your child should have brought home an energy kit last night. There was also a paper that came home with it called Home Energy Worksheet.

Students have two weeks to complete this worksheet and bring it back to school. It will be due on November 11th.

Students receive a color changing pencil and a certificate for bringing this back. If 80% of students return the worksheet, our classroom gets $100!

Let me know if you have any questions!
