Halloween

We had a great day today! We loved dressing up and seeing everyones costumes. They were all so creative with their costumes.
We had an amazing party thanks to our room moms and parent volunteers. I loved having all the parents come in a help. It was so fun! The students were very creative with their crafts and they enjoyed the games and sweets!

Oct 1- Oct 5

Thank you for studying the water cycle vocabulary words with your child this week. They did fabulous on the test today. They brought home their test today so please look in their backpack for it. Next week we are moving onto learning about the weather. They will be learning about the different types of clouds and the weather instruments. 
In math, we have started multiplication. It is really important to help your child learn their multiplication facts...so please work extra hard on “36 Club” so we can get them working on their multiplication. They have learned how to solve a 2x1 digit multiplication problem using the Area Model (yes, it is very different than the way we learned..but they will learn 3-4 methods which really helps them understand it better). Some are grasping it quickly and some are still getting tricked at times, but we will continue to work on them. 
In language arts we have been talking about the theme of a story and how some stories have a cause and effect – – see if they can tell you what they each mean. Next week we will be talking about inferencing. We have also been working on our opinion writing and we will continue to do so for a few more weeks. We also worked on fragment, run-on, and complete sentences. They learned that each sentence must have a subject and a predict to make it complete….it is the run-on sentences that are tricking them though so we will continue to work on those.

Blue class has PE next Thursday – Yellow class has it the following Monday (October 8). 

We are busy each day, but learning so much! They are doing a great job.

Welcome

Welcome back to school! I am so excited for the school year to begin. We are going to be learning about so many fun and interesting things this year. We will be learning about the water cycle, rocks, Utah, math facts, literacy novels, vocabulary, and many more!
This first week of school we will be taking some pre-assessments and reviewing procedures and classroom rules.  We will also be starting our literacy program, Journeys, this week and math.
This week we will be doing some fun getting to know you activities and having a good time. I know many of you already know each other, but I cannot wait to meet all of you and get to know all of your likes, dislikes, enjoyments, and sweet personalities. 
Our time together will be crunched because we will be switching each day with the Chinese class at lunchtime.  We only have 2 1/2 hours together each day and we are going to work extra hard to get tons of learning in during that three hour block.  During their 2+ hour block we will be doing our literacy program (reading, writing, grammar, fluency, etc), math, social studies, and science.  It will be a lot of fun, but it is extremely important to come each day ready and to do your part! 

I hope you are as excited as I am about coming to school! I can't wait to meet all of you and to go on this new adventure with you.
