Hello 110 Families,

 

We had another wonderful week last week. We had another visit with Uli.   We made pizza and I know a lot of the kids wanted the recipe.  I haven’t received it from Uli yet but he is sending it.  I will send it home with the kids when I get it. 

 

This is a short week so I will include this week and next weeks information.

 

There is not school Wednesday, Thursday or Friday this week.  Conferences are tomorrow evening and Wednesday during the day.  If you haven’t signed up yet, there are still spots available, mostly on Wednesday.

 

Next Friday is Fall Fun Fest and the basket we are creating is a home movie and popcorn night themed basket.  We will collect donations for this basket and it will be auctioned off at the Fall Fun Fest.  Ideas for the basket would be new or used movies (kid appropriate), fancy popcorn or popcorn flavors, fun snacks, gift cards to pizza delivery or anything else that would make a home movie night special.

What we’re doing in:

 

Reading: We are thinking about making sure we understand what we are reading by using strategies to figure out tricky works, checking for understanding and rereading when necessary.

 

Math: We are working on place value and thinking about strategies we use when putting together and taking apart numbers to solve problems.

 

Science: We are comparing the lifecycles of mealworms, waxworms and milkweed bugs.  We are doing observations of the insects when we notice changes and writing in our science journals. 

 

Writing: We are writing personal narratives.  We are thinking about really meaningful small moments in our lives and writing about them.  We are planning out our stories before we write and working on starting with a really detailed beginning that catches the readers attention. We have also added detailed middles to our stories and endings that either complete an action, echo the beginning, solve a problem or use the words of the title.
