News for the Week of February 27th

Hi Parents,

Hope all is well! Monday begins our first day of Spring! Our year is flying by and I’m happy there is warmer weather on its way!

Thank you to those who spoke with their children about last week’s newsletter. We were hard at work this past week talking through any issues that may arise and learning how to problem solve, in a more kind way. I’m happy to say that I feel that our message is resonating with the children. Moving forward, we will continue working on the social-emotional aspect of the classroom and hopefully more friendships blossom and we have less drama and conflict.

This week our class is learning about……..

Reading-
We will be continuing reading chapter book No Talking by Andrew Clements. Strategies that we will be working on this week is identifying problems our character faces and ways in which he changes over the course of the story. While conducting this reading strategy, we will identify the problem, how the character changed because of it and who influenced the character.

Writing-

This week, our class will be working on picking their topics for opinion writing. I have conveyed to them that it’s important to choose something that they have experience with and would be able to write about. Please encourage your child to discuss their topic with you so you can ensure that they have sufficient experience and knowledge surrounding what they’ve chosen.

Math-
This week we will work on customary units of measurement. We will be solving real-world word problems pertaining to customary units of measurement and using measuring tape, rulers and yard stick to do math investigations in the classroom.

Social Studies-
We will begin talking about national leaders through read alouds and research! Our next round of Enrichment clusters will begin this week and students will be delving into Europe this time around.

Science-
This week we will continue our work on balance and motion.We are working on vocabulary development and discussing gravity, friction and force!

Sincerely,
Ms. Kender

PS- Also a kind reminder that I dismiss between 2:25 and 2:30. Please try your best to be on time.
