SPELLING-We are now spelling words with more than one syllable. In order to divide words into syllables, we play Vowel Tag. The vowel is running the way we read. The vowel tags the consonant after it and makes it a closed syllable.

For example, magnet is divided into two syllables:    mag   net

This week the spelling words are:

  1. within
  2. visit
  3. travel
  4. suffix
  5. planets
  6. object
  7. level
  8. finished
  9. itself
  10. hundred
  11. himself
  12. cannot
  13. British
  14. children
  15. happened
  16. pretty
  17. woman
  18. women

READING-The children started bringing home comprehension sheets with their reading homework. Please make sure your child completes the sheet. If your child is reading a chapter book they only need to read one chapter a night and fill out the log for that section. We are working on “good thinking” about books.

MATH-This week we will be reviewing for and taking the 1st quarter assessment. The report card grades will be based on this assessment. The test is planned for Thursday, Nov. 4th. Review sheet will come home on Monday.

SOCIAL STUDIES- In November and December we will be focusing on Colonial times followed by Celebrations around the world.

EARLY RELEASE DAY-We have an early release day on Tuesday Nov. 2nd.

NO SCHOOL-There will be no school on Wed., Nov. 10th and Wed., Nov. 24th through Nov. 28th.

CONFERENCES-It is hard to believe that it is almost report card time. In the next few weeks we will be testing the children in reading, math and writing. Conferences are on Wed., Nov. 17th in the evening and on Thurs., Nov. 18th in the afternoon and evening. Look for a conference sheet to come home-please fill out your most convienent times and we will do everything we can to accomidate you. I hope to meet with every family!!

Donuts with Dad

Wednesday morning dads and grandpas came to school early and enjoyed a treat with their child. It was great to see all those smiling faces.


We have been working on adding descriptive words to our writing. Today we used our five senses to describe an apple and pumpkin. The kids favorite part was tasting the apples. Later this week we will be writing a fall poem using our 5 senses and typing them in Computer Lab on Monday.
