This week we will read several stories that support “Growth Mindset” concepts and will study vocabulary and themes from the text. Students will discuss character traits, major events in the story and the author’s purpose or lesson. We will make predictions while reading and encourage students to infer what might happen beyond the text.


Students will be given a new writing journal and the writing they have done thus far will be put into a book and be ready to take home in the coming weeks.  If you are interested in volunteering to help put the books together please let me know.


This week, we will begin unit 3. In this unit we will practice with tools such as number lines and number grids.  We will practice skip counting and adding and subtracting using a variety of diagrams to help us.


We will be honoring Native American Heritage Month with stories and activities.  We will attend a Native American Powwow celebration on the 21st.  If you have not returned your trip slip[ and money please do so as soon as possible,
