I hope you and your children have a wonderful weekend! Just a reminder, tomorrow is a Teachers' Institute Day and Monday is Columbus Day, so we won't have school tomorrow or Monday. I told the kids they could read at least twenty minutes a day, practice math facts, and practice writing stories at home (we're starting with writing a sentence and drawing a picture to go along with it).
This week the kids practiced forming words with digraphs sh, wh, th, ck, and ch. We worked on addition and number skills using white boards, markers, erasers, dice, number grids, number lines, and water bottles with dice in them. We worked on IXL. So far this year, we have worked on these lessons on IXL: A.1, A.2, A.3, A.12, B.1, B.2, B.3, C.1, C.2, C.3, D.1, D.2, and D.3. If the kids haven't finished those and want to get more practice at home, they can complete those lessons to 100 %.
Students read books, they took A.R. quizzes, they listened to me finish reading Magic Tree House Book #1 and started listening to me read a Scooby Doo chapter book where we're trying to figure out the mystery, and practiced writing words and sentences. We did a science experiment by creating a star gazer and learned about making good vs. bad choices in social studies. Students continued writing and illustrating their stories.
Have a great weekend! Mrs. Z
