January 16 - 19

Monday: NO SCHOOL.
Tuesday: Math homework, Big Boom (board games).
Friday: Spelling test, Sledding party 8:30 - 10:00 for students who paid Cardinal coins for it. 

A few ways you can help your child this week:

*Encourage them to read at home!! 
*Practice basic addition and subtraction facts. 
*If they have access, they can play math games at home to reinforce their skills. Check out the RG Math Games page!

Reading: This week, students are working on making inferences from texts as they read. We are also comparing and contrasting two fictional stories.

Spelling City:

Writing: Students are learning about writing informational reports, including researching and taking notes. They will begin to find books on an animal of their choice. We are also starting cursive!   
Math: We are starting a new unit on 2-digit addition and subtraction. The students will be learning multiple strategies to add and subtract. These strategies will be explained to parents at conferences. Ask your child to explain the strategies they are learning!
Science: We are learning about solids and liquids. 

It's hard to believe we are already in the 3rd quarter of our school-year! We have been having a lot of fun learning in Room 123, and I love working with your children every day.  Please don't hesitate to email or call with any questions, comments, or concerns.
