What are we learning this week?

English Language Arts (ELA): 

We will continue to learn more about stated and implied main ideas. Not only will we identify main idea and supporting details in our reading, we’ll also write main ideas and supporting details. This allows us to see the importance of main ideas and supporting details both as a reader and a writer. Every two weeks, we take part in a 3-minute timed reading test called DAZE. This quick assessment offers practice and a progress monitoring tool for reading accurately. Hot/Cold Readings continue to go well!

Math:

We will be taking our Chapter 4 math test on Tuesday this week. We spent time learning more about the multiplication of larger numbers by one-digit numbers using the CRA approach. Many students are able to multiply numbers using more than method (area model, traditional algorithm, Distributive Property). A quick note about math homework…if there is a traditional addition, subtraction, multiplication and/or division problem, students should NOT use a calculator on those problems. These are usually the math problems at the very top of the page. Other than that, students may use a calculator for the remainder of the problems.

Social Studies:

We will begin a unit on William Penn on Tuesday. PA Native American projects are due Monday, November 4th. The project is to be completed at home, but the report will be written in school.

Science:

We are taking a break for now.

A Beautiful Fall…

Hi everyone! It was a beautiful fall day outside and a great day inside D108 with lots of learning. This week we worked more on inference skills, finding the main idea and details of a text, and writing paragraphs. We also finished a unit on multiplication and began learning about the operation of division. We are reading a story about a K9 officer named Aero and we’re learning to be THIEVES ( a non-fiction reading strategy) when we read non-fiction. Next week we will continue work on all of these concepts and throw in work on revising and editing our writing, writing a friendly letter, and more work with division.

Parent Teacher conference times will be coming home on Monday. Please let me know if we need to make any changes. Next Friday is an early dismissal, so please plan accordingly. Thanks for all of your help and support with homework. Keep on reading!! Next week we will return to a normal spelling list and homework week.

The week of October 28-31 will be Red Ribbon Week. This is a week to bring awareness to harmful drug use. More information will be coming home next week to let you know how to participate.

Have a great weekend!

Weekly Wrap-Up (10/15-10/18)

Important info.

Please help our class earn a $50 mini-grant from PPL Electric by filling out the energy survey sent home last week. You can even fill it out online by clicking here! My teacher ID is 95888.

Friday folders are coming home today. Inside, you will find the sheet that has your parent-teacher conference day and time. Please return the bottom portion of the sheet along with the Friday folder.

Looking Back

We had a great week in our classroom this week! We’ve made the switch from Science to Social Studies recently, and students are now going to Mrs. Loreto’s room for a portion of the day to learn about the 13 colonies. We finished our first class read-aloud, “How to Steal a Dog.” It’s such a good read… ask them about it! We’ve begun a new read-aloud, “The Crossover” (Kwame Alexander). We finally had the opportunity to utilize the PTO-purchased Google VR headsets. We took a “field trip” to Puerto Rico, and learned about its history and ties to the U.S. The Blue Rock Fire Department paid us a visit today. Our students got a brief tour of a fire engine, watched a fire fighter dress for the job, and learned how to protect ourselves from fire at home.

Looking ahead

Tuesday – Phys Ed.

Friday – Early dismissal; Library book exchange

  • Scholastic Book Fair will be November 4-8.

Question marks and Bats and Birds

Today we learned about a question mark. We used our question mark sheet to identify sentences as a statement or a question. Then we watched a quick video on question marks.

Later in the day we reviewed what we learned about bats and birds from our story Stellaluna. Then we discovered more bat facts and bird facts from our utube clips. We then sorted the facts with a VENN Diagram .

Volunteers from Blue Rock Fire Department will join us for a morning of Fire Prevention Fun!  Students will explore the fire truck, meet fire fighters, and learn lessons on fire safety.

This visit will kick off our Boot Drive Coin Collection for the fire department!  Bring in your coins, put them in our “boots” and help give back to our Central Manor Community!  The collection will continue until Friday, October 25th.  Let’s practice teamwork. Imagine the impact our Central Manor students could have on our local community with each of us making a donation and working together to see that grow.

Spiders and Screams

I did hand out ring spiders today to all the children. We were reading spider books with spider rings.

It was so much fun to watch everyone walking outside today. That is where the screams were heard. They kept telling me they were going to blow away. With that said, I always try my best to get the children outside everyday. When the temperature gets below 32 degrees then I start to think twice about going outside. Please make sure that your child is dressed to play outside everyday. As reminder keep practicing putting coats on and off with your child. That includes zippering and buttoning their coats.

Final thoughts from the season

Hello Penn Manor Cross Country Families!

We had a nice gathering to celebrate the season and share a few memories along the way! Thank you for being so supportive of our program and giving us the opportunity to coach and teach your children the fundamentals of Cross Country.

Best wishes to all of our athletes as they take a little time off before pursuing their next venture this year! I will also pass on information regarding Outdoor Track when it becomes available.

Enjoy our team photo from this afternoon!

Hump Day Herald

I hope you all are doing well. This past weekend was a lot of traveling for me and it was also a lot of fun. I spent the weekend in Ohio with my daughter and son-in-law. It is always exciting catching up with them and what is going on in their lives.

Just a few updates:

  1. We have started learning about the numbers 6-10.
  2. We are slowly getting through letters “c” and “o”.
  3. Studying spiders has been interesting. I am looking forward to making our spider webs on Friday. They will hang in the hallway for a while.
  4. For birthday treats the morning class has 23 children and the afternoon class has 22 children. I always like to make sure we have enough for everyone.
  5. October 25 will be dress like your favorite book character day.

Please return your conference forms if you haven’t already. We begin scheduling on Friday.

Thanks for all your support!

Spelling Bee

Today we got our new spelling words. We talked about the -all chunk. Your child should have received the new list yesterday in their backpack. You can download lesson 6 from my BLOG if you don’t have them. We played a game called spelling bee today. The students put a dry erase board , marker, and the spelling list on their desk. As we chanted, spelling bee, spelling bee, going on a spelling spree, ha ha , hee, hee, you can’t sting ME!, the class moved around the room. After the word me, they needed to go to a desk. Then I get to “sting” someone with my BEE WAND. The person I sting gets to pick a spelling word for the whole class to spell on their dry erase board!
