There are still some open spot buys for Cupcake Decorating with me and Mrs. McGarry (1st grade) this Thursday after school for about 45 minutes. You can sign up on MySchoolAnywhere.com, go to "store" or you can let Rachel Duncan know that you'd like to sign up your child and drop off a check for $15 at the office.
The 3rd grade team also has a movie and popcorn spot buy. The movie will be Coco and the date will be sometime after Thanksgiving break. You can sign up on Myschoolanywhere.com.
Language Arts: Our story for the next 2 weeks is Dogzilla. Your student will be working on story elements and summarizing. They have also been practicing naming parts of speech and using that to write "5-Parts" stories. We have been reading books together and practicing the fiction Notice and Note strategies, so they can learn what the author is trying to tell them.
Your child should be reading at home for 15-20 minutes every day after school. Please check that they are reading one whole book before starting a new one. When they finish a book at home, then they should let me know so they can take an AR quiz at school. Please check in with them to be sure they are reading and understanding their at-home chapter book. Ask them about the main character, the setting, and/or what’s happening in the story.
Your student can login to Lexia (Core 5 on symbaloo) at home to practice their grammar and reading skills.
Math: The students are working in Module 2. We worked on Lesson 7 today. This Module also covers measurements (g, kg, L, and mL) and rounding to the nearest 100 and 10.
Your student should be working on memorizing the 2s, 3s, and 4s multiplication and division facts. We have been practicing division/multiplication word problems up to the 4s. We will then move on to the 5s-9s, and then 10s-12s in Module 3.
They can log into Zearn at home. Zearn has videos, games, and practice that follow the Eureka math curriculum. They can also do Prodigy at home too.
Science: We went into the STEAM lab to learn about inherited traits of plants using zinnias. We are continuing to learn about inherited traits of pumpkins.
Social Studies: We have started our first unit on the 4 regions of California - mountain, coast, desert, and valleys.
