What Will We Learn in Quarter 1?!

ELA:
For writing, we will be reviewing how to write complete sentences. We will also be learning how to write paragraphs with a topic sentence, 3 or more details, and a closing sentence.

For reading, we will be learning about a variety of nonfiction and fiction stories through read alouds, small group instruction, and our Harcourt Storytown series. Our focus skills will be characters, setting, and plot.

Math:
The students will be assessed on daily math facts. Your child should be bringing home his/her envelope each night for you to see his/her progress. The students are also more than welcome to take home copies of fast facts to practice at home. Remember that X-Tra Math is a great website available for students to use at home. Please let me know if you need your child's log-in information.

In addition to math facts, the students will be learning place value, data and graphing, and time to the 5 minutes.

Science and Social Studies are integrated into our studies through monthly lessons, experiments, STEAM lessons, and Scholastic News articles and activities.

New Homework Policy

As we continue to foster the students' independence and sense of responsibility, we have changed our homework policy for the second half of the year. Any student who does not turn in required homework, will be asked to complete it during recess the next day. An exception would be due to illness or a planned excused trip. Those students would have an additional day to complete their missed work. Students will have ample time to play and socialize once they are done. Thank you for your continued support.
