Welcome Back Friday 1/11/2019

Welcome back from Winter break!

Hi all parents and welcome back! This has been a great and busy week getting back into the swing of things. Here is an update of the new units we have started for Q3:

Math: Chapter 6 We are moving on to adding and subtracting 3 digit numbers. We are modeling 3 digit numbers through drawings and reinforcing the terms of ones, tens and hundreds as values.

Science: We have began the unit on Earth and its Resources. This week discussed fast/slow changes
on the Earth's surface due to earthquakes, floods, volcanoes, erosion, weathering and droughts.

Social Studies: We are starting a fun unit on Culture and Traditions. We will first review some of the culture of the native people in America and others around the world.

Language Arts: The focus of writing for this unit is Persuasive Writing. We have started the writing process by pre writing and drafting a persuasive paragraph in writing class. I encourage you to ask your child what their paragraph was about. (some fabulous ideas) Later in the quarter we will be producing a persuasive essay following the steps in the writing process.

Reminders:

  • Lunch Fees due next fee for Semester 2 if you haven't brought in already.
  • Elective Activities will begin next Friday, and we will inform the students which class they be joining before then.
  • Saturday, Jan.19th is Semester 2 Parent Teacher Meeting where I will be informing you of what will be covering academically for this semester. I look forward to seeing you all.
