Have you signed up to be a Mystery Reader?


We know that GOOD readers "think" about what they are reading!We reviewed some important reading comprehension strategies: Making Connections, Asking Questions, Visualizing, Predicting, and Inferring.We learned to pick a "just right book" using an IPICK strategy.This month we will begin using our Reading Street Series that includes a great selection of stories. Every week there will be a new story. The stories will be tested on Friday.Reading Assessments are complete and students will be grouped into guided reading groups. Guided Reading Folders will stay in school. We will begin differentiated learning centers where independent learning will be taking place.Spelling will begin this month! A weekly spelling list and homework menu will come home each week. This menu is due back on Fridays. Spelling Test every Friday!

We will continue to learn about place-value, number patterns, estimation, and rounding.We will be working in Chapter 2...Learning about Addition Properties and Relationship between Addition and Subtraction.Please have your child continue to practice math facts (addition and subtraction). Mad Minutes are on Mondays and Wednesdays, and the Fast Fact Challenge is every Friday.We solved our first Open Ended Problem. Open Ended Problems will be completed every Friday. They are scored based on the rubric that was attached to the first one sent home. So keep the rubric in a safe place!

Our Writers' Notebooks turned out BEAUTIFUL! Thanks for all your support with this project. They will cherish their notebooks forever.We have created lists to help "spark" our ideas for writing. Some of our lists are titled: People to Write About Places to Write About Surroundings to Spark an ideaWriter's Notebooks will come home once a week with a homework assignment. We will learn to take a "watermelon" writing and nurture a "seed" from it! Then we will choose a "seed" for our first personal narrative.
