Happy Monday Everyone!
We have a busy week this week! Hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful fall weather and the cooler temperatures! The “climate” in our classrooms can vary from day to day, and from room to room. Its a good idea to send your child to school in layers…they may be cooler in the morning in Mrs. Bristle’s room and warmer in the afternoon in Mrs. Kenney’s room. (and some days vice versa!)
This week in Language Arts:
We will be working on opinion piece writing surrounding the topic “Should kids be on Reality TV?” The kids will read an article on the topic, have a discussion/debate about the topic, will choose a side, and then write a paragraph supporting their opinion. We will also be working on some Social Studies activities in Language Arts and will be researching and writing about prehistoric tribes in Ohio. The Spelling test this week will be on THURSDAY due to Fall Festival on Friday.
This Week in Math:
We will be starting our unit on Multiplication and Division. This is a 45 day unit so we should be great at multiplying and dividing when we finish! It is so important that the students have a firm grasp of their multiplication facts, please keep practicing at home! The first part of this unit builds on the Measurement Unit that we just finished and deals with Area and Perimeter. We will be working on a favorite project of many former students with this unit…ask your child about the backyard project.
One more reminder that we have our Fall Festival Trip to Hickory Lakes this Friday. Please make sure your child’s permission slip is turned in or they will not be permitted to attend. Right now the weather looks great for Friday, please make sure your child is dressed appropriately.
Please let us know if you need anything…we are here to help!
