These next two weeks in November will be very busy! I will give some highlights here, but please also check out the MOE web page.
-First grade musical performance is Thursday of this week!
-Book Fair is open the week of Nov. 18. If you want your child to shop during the school day that is fine, but PLEASE BE SURE any money sent in is labeled "Book Fair".
-Thanksgiving Feast....Our class welcomes you to join us at our special time of Thursday, Nov. 21, 10:25-11:05. Meals are $3.45 per person and can be purchased online. Student meal accounts will be used for them as normal. The Book Fair will be open so if you come to lunch, you may want to take your child there afterwards.
-There are a variety of giving opportunities sponsored by MOE organizations, (pajama drive, etc.) both right now and as as we approach the holidays. Please see the MOE website for details!
IN THE CLASSROOM
MATH: Working with word problems with the unknown in ALL places. Example: 2 + _ = 5, _ + 4 = 6, and the unusual... 3 + 4 = _.
SCIENCE: Learning about light sources (natural or man made), how light affects shadows.
WRITING/GRAMMAR: We just finished our unit about teaching books, and are beginning to write non-fiction chapter books. Using past, present, and future tense verbs.
READING: Reading to learn about the world. Working on talking about what we read and STAYING ON TOPIC.
These are some high points - not a full list....
Many topics carry over from week to week.
