We are still very busy reading and working on reading skills daily.  
We are working on building fluency and gaining comprehension 
as we read.  It is very important for children to read each evening.
  As your child reads to or with you have them retell what they have
 read, or answer questions you may prompt them with during/after 
reading.  We are working a lot with story elements (characters, setting,
 problem and solution).  You can also practice grammar using simple 
sentences.   We have been talking about nouns (person place o
r thing) and verbs (the action word a thing you can do).  We also
 are finding the naming part of a sentence( the who or what).

We are busily writing and working in our nonfiction unit.
  We are writers who teach with our words and pictures. 
 We are really working on handwriting and the correct 
formation of letters.  Using the lines and spaces correctly
 to form neat and appropriate letters.

Adding and subtracting and story problems ...Oh My! 
Students are working on strategies for solving addition
 and subtraction problems.  We are working on writing
 number equations.  In topic 6 we will be representing and
 interpreting data.  We will talk about surveys, tally marks,
and picture graphs.  To interpret the data the students
 will compare data and they will solve word problems
 to find the “unknown” data.

    Holiday Celebrations Around the World
Each and every student has different holiday traditions
 and ways to celebrate the season.  We are planning a journey
to see how children from Russia, England,Italy, Scandinavia.
 Australia, and Wales celebrate.  

It is getting colder outside and winter
 weather is approaching.  Please send your ch
child to school with the appropriate winter attire. 
 Also please talk to them about “keeping track” of
 their hats, mittens, etc.  We do our best to help
 with this process. Please encourage them to
 keep a pair of shoes here at school, or
remind them to send a pair daily. 
Thank you:)
