Week of October 21st
I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. It was nice to see so many of you at the beautiful mass Sunday to recognize the second graders. I hope you were able to get outside and enjoy the absolutely gorgeous weather we had. It is safety week here at SJF and we have many drills planned. Please see below for more details.
On Wednesday. Please sign your child’s planner
Tuesday we are having a lock down drill
Wednesday we have safe routes ambassadors coming to talk about safety while crossing the street
Friday we are having a bus evacuation drill
For the rest of the week, the info to know is as follows:
Math- We will working on Chapter 3; Addition and subtraction. Homework will be Monday-Thursday. Please continue to practice addition/subtraction with your child.
Spelling- The Spelling words for this week are as follows:long, bank, hang, wink, sink, drink, ring, wing, sing, king, another, around, almost, food, and under. If children use capital letters inappropriately, or write letters backwards, the word will be marked wrong. Homework on Monday is 4X each
Reading- The students will be reading Fury Mouse and Two Mice. The students should read Two Mice for homework on Wednesday. Every Friday, the kids will take a vocabulary/comprehension quiz that I will take for a grade out of 10 points. Along with our weekly quizzes, we will also be doing 1 extended response question. The children and I will be doing these together for a while. You will start to see the acronym SLAM. Don’t forget about accelerated reading tests. Students are required to pass 4 tests each month (70% or higher.) Students can take quizzes before or after school in the library, or in our room during reading class. The kids are really excited about this. Reading each and every night will help your child prepare. I will be taking a grade each month for AR. If students pass 4 tests in a month, they will earn 40/40. If they only pass 3 tests, their score will be 30/40 and so on. Bookadventure.com is a great FREE site where kids can take practice tests.
Religion- We will start working on Chapter 4: We praise and thank God.
Language Arts- We will continue working on different types of nouns. Testis tentatively scheduled for next Wednesday the 30th
Social Studies-We will begin working on Unit 2; The Earth
Science- We will finish classifying living/nonliving things
