What we will be learning this week:
Math: Students will finish the chapter 1 math assessment on Monday. We will begin chapter 2 studying data and graphs; using picture graphs and data charts to solve problems. This is a continuation of a skill that students learned in second grade.
Reading; We will start the week talking about inferencing and "author and me" questions. These questions require students to combine what they already know with what they've read in text. So the focus will be inferencing and drawing conclusions.
Important Walk-to-Read is scheduled to begin Wednesday. Look for the letter being sent home on Monday! It will explain our Walk-to-Read and who your child's teacher will be for reading, writing, and spelling. Because of this change there will be NO spelling this week.
Social Studies: We will continue this with introducing Alaska studies. We will begin with our many state's symbols.
We had a good turn out on Wednesday at the Running Jamboree. Here are some pics of the event:
