Dear Parents,                          October 16, 2017

Language Arts: In Writers Workshop we are spending the week revising our work so we are ready to publish our stories next week! In Readers Workshop we are continuing to work with a partner as we read. We are practicing introducing our books, doing something at the end of our reading and setting new goals for our reading. This week, we will be focusing on double final consonants (two consonants that are found at the end of a word. Ex: pass, fill, egg). Our spelling words will be practicing these sounds and will come from Unit 16 in our books.

Math: We will practice adding and subtracting using a number line and we will review telling time and will begin practicing telling time to the half hour.

Science: We are continuing our work on nocturnal animals. This week we will discuss raccoons and moths.

Social Studies: We are practicing finding our addresses on a map and discussing changes in our families.

Religion: This week we are working from our textbook. We will be focusing on Chapter 7: We Pray to God Our Father. We also received our Saint Report for our upcoming Saints Parade on November 3rd!
