Dear parents. What a busy week! Here is a summary of what we were up to. 🙂
In Reading, students have been focusing on studying characters in their story books and using academic language to describe what they see and hear. This is linking in with their own story writing that they are working towards.
This week in writing, students in 4C published their first realistic fiction story. A few students were brave enough to share with the class on the carpet and received feedback from other students. From here, we will now begin our second piece of work and continue refining by using more transitional language and adding sensory details.
In Math, we wrapped up the first half of their Unit 1 Module. The kids have gained a deeper understanding of place value, the Base-10 system, inequalities, and rounding using number lines. We will now move into fluently adding and subtracting whole numbers using tape diagrams as well as the standard algorithm.
And finally, this week in our Cultural Unit we explored other cultures in our classroom as well as our own culture. From here, students will be creating interview questions to gain a deeper understanding of their family background.
Please be aware that due to the incoming typhoon, school may be canceled on Monday. While I certainly hope this is not the case, do look for an email from me giving the kids some activities to complete during the day.
And one last thing…on Wednesday, we will have our first round of Parent-Student-Teacher conferences. Hopefully by now, you’ve signed up for a time using SignUpGenius. I look forward to seeing you all then!
Have a safe and dry weekend!
