We have been working on our map skills and various topics pertaining to maps. We have been also working on our knowledge of our state. In a few weeks, we will be putting our knowledge to use to create salt dough maps of our state. We still need a few more volunteers to make salt dough (about 5 more) and then we will also need a few helpers who can come in on the 28th @ 2:15 to help us create these maps. I will be sending home a recipe this week for those who have offered to make the salt dough.
We will be introducing the comprehension strategy of text to self connections this week. Students build stronger comprehension of a story when they are able to make a personal connection to what they are reading.
We will have another list with ending blends this week. I have added the list to Spelling City. If students logon, they can play different games using the spelling list that I have added for the week. https://www.spellingcity.com/jocelyndubs/
Our focus will continue to be on nouns.
We will continue with the concept of place value. We will also be working with situation of the day.
We will continue to work on maps this week.
By now, your child should have at least 8 boxes filled in off of their homework calendar. Please be sure to help keep them on track for finishing at least 16 of the boxes by the 29th. Also, please don't forget to be checking their reading logs. Students should be writing AT LEAST 2 sentences that tell about the setting of the book. One sentence should talk about the specific place and time of day, the other sentence should tell about the place in time that the story took place (past, present, or future).
Thanks for all your support! Have a great week!
