Friday News - Sep. 29

Happy Friday! 
We had yet another great week here in 3.1! 

In Math we are working on subtraction. We learning about how in some story problems we can find estimates (rounded answers) and in others we need to find exact answers. We will continue working on subtraction next week -- you can help your child by practicing subtracting 3 and 4-digit numbers! (Also, XtraMath is a great tool -- please try to use it at home) 

In Reading we have been reading to ourselves, reading to a friend, and listening to reading! Our reading strategy has been how can we RETELL stories? We can retell a story we have read by naming the setting, the characters, the problem, what happened in the beginning, middle, end and how the problem was solved. 

In Writing we started Writer's Workshop! We decorated our awesome writer's notebook journals and started writing about people and places that are important in our lives....KEEP UP THE WRITING! 

Science ROCKS because we are learning about rocks! We have learned the rock cycle, the three types of rocks (igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic), and about properties of rocks -- the kids became rock investigators and chefs! 






In Bible we finished up our Creation story unit -- creating our mobiles of each day of creation. Parents, hopefully you got to see them because the students are bringing them home today in their Friday Folders.


Speaking of Friday Folders...please look in them! There are a lot of things. I sent home a permission slip for our field trip. Please fill out, sign and return to school as soon as you can. Also, Terra Nova test results from last year, next week's spelling words and memory verse, spelling tests, Days of Creation mobile....take a look!
