As you know, our class is now on Twitter! Each week I’ll pick two children to help post daily tweets about what they’re learning or doing in school. This blog has more in depth info. along with what’s in this newsletter, and Twitter has quick short bits and pics of what goes on each day. Stay totally in the loop of your child’s school day, and hopefully never hear the answer of “nothing” when asking your child what they did in school by following us on Twitter and reading the blog. You can find us on Twitter by looking up @mrscarnevale3rd. For each parent or step-parent that follows us on Twitter, your child will receive 50 tiger tickets! For each other relative such as grandparent or aunt/uncle, your child will receive 10 tiger tickets!
From time to time I send home Scholastic Book Orders. Please don’t feel obligated to purchase anything. It’s just one of many ways to find books and materials for your child. Along with ordering through the paper form, you could also order online. A larger selection of books is actually available online. The order link and our class code are on our class website. Online and paper forms are due next Friday, Nov. 21. If you send the form to school, please be sure to pay with a check made out to Scholastic Book Club. Please do not send cash.
We are well underway with our study of multiplication! We start unit 5 next week, which covers multiplying by 0, 1, 2, 5, 9, and 10 (and I throw in 11 too). If your child does not have flash cards you can find many free sets online, or you can ask me for one and I’ll print out a set for him/her. A multiplication card game your child can play at home for more practice was sent home on Friday. You can find another copy of it in our class website's File Cabinet. Feel free to count time with this game on the math fact log!
Here's what we'll be studying next week:
Reader’s Workshop: Nonfiction books
Writer’s Workshop: Information writing
Spelling: Unit 11 - Words home on Monday, test on Friday
Math: Topic 5, Multiplication
Social Studies: Native Americans
Please remember that my door is always open if you have any questions or concerns. Together we are partners in your child’s education!
