   Our question of the week - 

   Why is it a good idea to work together?   

Spelling  -  We will be working on patterns for singular to plural nouns.  Examples are  puppy/puppies, dish/dishes, and bat/bats.  


Note regarding RtI time -  
Individual classroom teachers are responsible for the teaching of reading, math, and writing skills to their own classroom students.  During the 30 min. RtI time students divide up into various groups and go to get some additional reading, math, or writing instruction or skill reinforcement.                          

Language -      We are discussing handwriting expectations and letter formations.  The students are discussing plural nouns.  We are working on using adjectives as we work on creative holiday writing pieces.

Math -   The students are continuing to work on number sense, patterns, and  mental math.  The students are doing some work with money, telling time, and graphs.  We are working on some problem solving in small groups.   We are continuing to work in our math journals wtih some problem solving.

        ** Math Games** 

Science -   We are getting updates on the Monarch migration and Mexican Monarch Sanctuaries.  We will be reading about reindeer and their habitats. 
Social Studies and Global Awareness -   We are reviewing what  STARR means.  We are continuing to 'Fill others' buckets'.  We are doing various holiday readings and discussions.


**Tip of the Week ** 

   Some children need to practice number sense and understanding number bonds.  One way to work on this is to give a child a number (within the range the child should know) and have him come up with a number of different ways to get to that number or to break that number up.

 Example -  36
26 + 10 =        38 -2 =       20 +10+6 =
25+11=       46-10=       18+18=  

6+6=     7+5=     14-2=     
12+0=     10+2=     4+4+4=
