I hope everyone enjoyed the extended weekend. Last Thursday marked the end of the first grading period. Report cards will be posted to Infinite Campus after school on Friday. Also on Friday will be our fall party. Please make sure to follow the guidelines provided for costumes. During the second grading period students will be focusing on reading historical fiction stories for ELA. Students will also be learning about character traits and affixes. We will continue to work on writing in paragraph format as well. This week students have received a new reading log and list of words to study. They will be quizzed on their words on November 6. On Tuesday students will be taking their addition/subtraction test for math. Our next unit will be on multiplication. In science we are beginning our new unit on plant life cycles. Students are still observing their caterpillars during science as well. During social studies students have begun to learn about the history of Auburn and Bainbridge. As a reminder if you have not signed up for parent teacher conferences please be sure to do so. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.
