WELCOME TO ROOM 6!

 

Dear Parents and Guardians,

As we enter the month of October, students have finished Stone Fox and completed their reading journals around the characters of Little Willy, Stone Fox, and Grandfather.  We examined the reasons behind choices one makes during trying times, and how we would respond given the same situations - would we do something different?  We discussed our opinions about being honest given those same difficult situations.  

In math we have continued to work on multiplication and division  fluency through game work

We have a couple of  projects to complete in social studies; globes, and very soon a group project - making a map of the regions of California. 

We are working on October themed art projects too - who can't resist a haunted house, or a skeleton? Perhaps we'll write a little potion poem too!!!  "Double, double toil and trouble; fire burn and caldron bubble," Shakespeare's Macbeth  the three witches.

In LPIE art we have worked on Flags, Native American Mask,  

 

Partner Reading Talk

In class students learn to talk about their reading.  Please feel free to use these talking prompts with your child as you read aloud or when they want to share about a book they are reading.
