Thank you to all of the parents that came to our parent-teacher conferences, they all went very well.
Also, thank you to all of the parents that worked the school carnival. I know the students I saw were having a great time!!
I have planned an ambitious schedule considering we have Halloween and All Saints Day Mass.
On Wednesday after the Halloween Costume Parade/Contest we are going to be coloring our own Jack O'Lanterns and writing a short description for them...I tape each pumpkin to the board and put a number under it. Each student reads their description and if we are able to guess which pumpkin is theirs within 3 guesses the student receives 2 pieces of candy. Each student will receive a piece of candy for participating. This takes us awhile, but the students love it and quickly realize how important it is to put some effort into a description.
This week in class:
Spelling: flipped, flipping, stepped, stepping, there, from, be, to, we, or
Reading: We are reading, "Dominic's Apple" and "Yuck! Yuck!"---Problem and Solution
Writing- We are writing a story about our field trip
Grammar- Take a verb and turn it into a noun by adding er....for example- swim...swimmer....The students are also learning that the one vowel, one letter after the vowel applies to adding 'er' at the end words not just 'ed' and 'ing'.
Math- Start the basics of subtraction-counting backwards
Science- All About Animals---Make little notebooks of animal groups
Social Studies--American Symbols
MASS Thursday---All Saint's Mass
