This past week seemed to fly by (don't they all).  We finished EnVisions Topic 3: Subtraction Strategies.  We played a new game called "Circle and Stars" to teach arrays.  Arrays are just repeated addition and builds a foundation for multiplication. The students learned about folktales and sequencing. Writer's Workshop included the students brainstorming costumes that they want to wear for Halloween, writing a rough draft about one specific costume, revising for more details, and editing for mistakes.  They worked with their "Think, Pair, Share" partner and helped each other revise and edit.  This upcoming week we will work on listing scary words and writing a scary story inspired by "Harry and the Horrible Whatzit" and "The Old Woman Who Wasn't Afraid of Anything."

Every morning we review language skills with Mt. Language.  No grades have been given on that yet.  Some of the skills are taking more time for them to master versus review.  D.O.G. is Daily Oral Geography and we study a different map every week. P.O.D. is the Math Problem of the Day kept in a Math Journal in student's desks.  I mention these so when your kiddos are bringing these practice papers home, you understand what they are. As always, contact me if you have any questions.  Remember to click on the Parentlink link to view your child's grades.
