November 10

Religion:   We will be sharing the completed Saints slides in class on Tuesday. The students will also be focusing on the PBIS pillar of responsibility. They will learn about a lot of vocabulary that goes along with being a responsible person.
Writing: The kids will be continuing their unit next week on personal narratives. They will be writing using sensory detail to enhance their memories. One of the topics they will write about will be their first day of school. The grammar lesson will be over possessive pronouns.
Math:  Unit Three continues next week.  We will focus on area, number models for area, diameter and circumference. There will be no math on Tuesday because of our Playhouse field trip.
Spelling: Week Eight o (Co, oa, ow) and consonant digraphs (gh, ph as /f/). The spelling section contains all of the weekly lists and the choice words in case your child misplaces their words.  You can also find a copy of LSCW if you need it.
Science/SS: They will focus on city and state and national government. They will be looking into the three branches of government as well.

Comprehension: We will be doing more with groups and continue to do individual conferences. The comprehension strategy is visualizing what you read.
