News If you have not sent in your Lego family brick and shamrock, please do so as soon as possible. March is Reading Month! Check out the calendar on the previous posts if you need another copy.
Language Arts Last week we worked on long i words with a silent e again, reading, listing for, and writing them. We also practiced answering questions form narratives. In writing we added details and tiles. We read an excellent series of books, Library Mouse al about a mouse who “writes what he knows!” The children have been writing their own books at work on writing just like Sam the mouse!
Math/Science/Social Studies In Math we started Module 4. We are working on number bonds, a model to show addition and subtraction. Some of the children are having difficulty with this new strategy. Keep up with daily math homework. These short activities reinforce our daily work in class and solidifies the foundations the children will need later in the year and next year in math. You can access the Eureka Math site, or use the parent tip sheets to help if needed. In Science we started our study of severe weather conditions. We have looked at tornadoes and blizzards, watching clips, hearing facts, including where they most often occur, and discussing precautions people can take if this sever weather is coming. In Social Studies we were studying the Michigan map, reinforcing where we live and making our own map keys.
