Week of Nov. 7 - Nov.

What an amazing weekend! I hope you took advantage of the gorgeous fall day to play outside.

What's up this week?

- I wonder how our seedlings did this weekend? I am excited to see them Monday morning. We planted, 4 types of lettuce, sweet basil, oregano, and chives. It won't be long now, they'll be hitting the towers soon.
- The link for interview times will be emailed out by the office on Monday. Please click the link to pick your 10 minute time slot.

- Thursday: Parent/Teacher Conferences. I look forward to meeting with your parents this week.
- Friday: Remembrance Day. If you are a cadet, Girl Guide, Scout.... please wear your unit. Parents are welcome to join our school ceremony at 10:30.

Math: We are wrapping up our measurement unit this week. Take a few minutes to review the goals for this unit. If there are any that you are still struggling with, please be sure to see me and ask questions.  This week, we will be starting our work on patterning. Please check out the learning goals for Patterning by clicking the tab at the top of this page.

Don't forget, to strengthen any skill, you need to practice. Math is no different! Can you imagine how much stronger your math skills would be if you practiced 20 minutes a day? There are activities set for you in Khan Academy and Prodigy.  You can make a difference in your math abilities!

Language: We are wrapping up our Global Read Aloud book PAX. There have been some tremendous conversations stemming from our book talks. We've met up twice with our friends in California, and look forward to working with them as we conclude our PAX journey.

We will continue to strength our descriptive writing with our blog posts. This week, you will be expected to put figurative language in your writing prompt.

Have a great week everyone! WHAT ARE YOU READING AT HOME?
