Weekly Wrap Up

A few times a year I send home a Scholastic book order. This is just one of many ways to find reading material for your child. Please don’t feel obligated to purchase anything, but if you do want to buy a book, you can either order and pay online, or you can send in the form with a check (please do not send cash). A larger selection of books is actually available online. The order link and our class code are on our class website. Online orders are delivered to the classroom and distributed to your child. They do not get sent to your home. Click here for the link on the class website for Scholastic Book Orders. Online and paper forms are due Friday, Nov. 13.

This week we started learning about the meanings of multiplication. Next week we start with the facts. Our math program does not do them in order (0-10). Topic 5 covers multiplying by 2, 5, 9, 1, 0, and 10, in that order. I also throw in 11 since it’s so easy. Late in the week ask your child to show you the nine’s trick with their hands. I’ll also tweet out a video of the trick on the day we learn it.

Once again we are collecting treats for troops. This is a great chance for your child to be a Goodness Gorilla (ask them what this means). Please send in a bit of extra Halloween candy next week. It will be distributed to our troops serving around the world

Here's what we're learning about next week:

  • Reader’s Workshop: Review of skills taught in unit 1
  • Writer’s Workshop: Continue revising and typing small moment stories
  • Math: Multiplying by 2 ,5, and 9
  • Social Studies: Northeast Woodland Native Americans

Please remember that my door is always open if you have any questions or concerns. I also check email frequently. Together we are partners in your child’s education!
