Mrs. Tracy Caputo « Teacher Connection / Documents / Calendar

 

Dear Parents, families, and students,

 

                                Another great week is in the books! I would like to express how proud I am of my wonderful group of kiddos for their behavior while I was out on Thursday and Friday. I got a glowing report from Mrs. Calteri. 

                                Open House will be held on Monday. This is a child free evening, so please make arrangements in advance. If this is a deciding factor for you to attend, I would rather you bring them then not come at all. There will be several important topics discussed and I would hate to see you miss out. Hopefully, I will see you all in attendance. What a great way to start earning those valuable informational PI hours. Picture day is on Wednesday and school uniforms are required.

                                I am so thrilled that all of you have agreed to have your child participate in the "gold" spelling list. I know there was some confusion on Friday with both of the lists, and Mrs. Calteri had the children write both lists in their agendas. Please focus on only the gold list. These are the words that they will be tested on Friday. As I mentioned last week, I will be going over this in detail at Open House. If you should have questions before hand, please feel free to contact me.

                                In reading this week, the following skills will be covered:

                                                   * Comprehension Skill: Character, setting, and story events

                                                   * Comprehension Strategy: Ask and answer questions

                                                   * Vocabulary Strategy: Context Clues: sentence clues

                                                   * Grammar: Subjects of a sentence

                                                   * Phonics Focus: Two-letter blends

                                                   * Genre: Fiction

                                                   * Reading Story: Not Norman

                                Completing the math assessment for chapter one will take place on Monday. We will begin chapter 2: Numbers to 1,000 on Tuesday. Grouping tens as hundreds, exploring 3-digit numbers, modeling 3-digit numbers, and understanding hundreds, tens, and ones will round out the math lessons for the week. This past Wednesday, the boys and girls completed their first fact assessment. They scored a touchdown with it!! Way to go! They will have another one this Wednesday. Keep up the fantastic job! As a reminder, if your child needs some additional help, www.mathfactcafe.com and www.themathworksheet.com are two great resources to use.

                                We will continue with our science unit on how a scientist works this week. It is my hope to have the unit finished by the end of the week, then we will shift to social studies and explore the world of maps.

                                I wish you all a safe and productive week. Please contact me at any time with your questions and concerns. On a final note, we are collecting box tops, so if you have them, please send them in.
