In Math, we are working on related facts.  We also call them fact families.  These addition and subtraction facts use the same three numbers. There are 4 problems in a fact family.  There are two addition and two subtraction. Please continue to work on learning math facts. I have started sending home practice papers for you to work on at home with your child. These do not have to be done, but will give your child additional practice.  Everyone can benefit from this.  They do not need to be returned unless you have questions. 

  The more facts your child knows, the easier each lesson will be for them. Every week we take a two minute math fluency quiz.  It is called L  to J.  It has a mix of addition and subtraction problems on it.  I have explained to the kids that the challenge is for them to see if they can more problems correct each week.  Our goal by the end is for each child to get all 10 problems correct.
I would like to take the math test for this chapter on Friday.  I will send the review page home on Thursday.    

Language


 Encourage your child to write sentences for you at home. We have been working on writing sentences in class all year.  We are working on compound words and the helping verbs has and have.  We are also working on answering questions with a complete sentence. 
 
  

Most of the class is doing really well with A.R.  Ask your child now and then  what they are reading and if they made a 100%.  To make our goal, we have to read and test over about 18-20 books. This means taking about two tests a week. Please keep in mind, students can test over books they have been reading at home, as long as the book is their level.  If you don't know how to look up the level, send the book to school or send me the title and I will look it up. 
We are keeping a Reading Log now.  When 12 books have been read, they will bring home their completed log for you to see.

Also, we have a snack cart break Friday afternoons.  A snack cost 75 cents. If you would like your child to have something, please send the money on Friday. If we don't have school on a Friday, we will try to have snack cart on Thursday.
