We spent the majority of our math class reviewing the Unit 1 Review Packet. These are coming home today and should be used to study for the unit 1 assessment on Thursday. There is also a worksheet for homework.

During reading we spent time discussing and identifying nouns. We also used Race to the South Pole to begin comparing and contrasting information in non faction text. Students also worked on reading groups activities and collected plural nouns (for spelling) while I met with small groups.

Following lunch and recess, the children will create charts focusing on common and proper nouns. Hopefully, this will further reinforce the idea that ALL proper nouns MUST begin with a capital letter. Then the children will continue working on writing personal narratives.

The day will end with session 4 of Econ and Me. This part focuses on production.

We will be taking a walking field trip of Damascus to visit several businesses and see economics in action. This will take place on Friday, November 7 from 9:20-12:30. Students will be back at school in time for lunch. The permission slip is coming home today. Please sign and return the bottom section today. If you want to chaperone, make a note of that on the bottom of the form!
