It is great to be back after a much needed Fall Break. I say much needed because it gave me just the right amount of time to get our classroom up and running for second quarter. The repairs are not 100% done but it was SO nice to be back in our normal routine this week!
We really hit the ground running this week and I was so impressed with the work the students produced. Be prepared for a busy and exciting second quarter! Please make sure to check out the "reminders" section of my blog to stay current on events happening at Rover!
Reading: As we continue "Walk to Read" this quarter, the phonics skills we are working on in each class are going to be completely different. I am going to post the phonics skill my "Walk to Read" class is working on, but just know if your child is in a different class they will be working on a different skill. This focus skill is going to be the same no matter what "Walk to Read" group they are in!
Phonics Skill: R-Controlled Vowel /ar/
Math: Next week we will be starting a geometry unit. This unit will cover 2-d shapes. We will will be learning the name and characteristics of shapes along with how many sides, vertices, and edges the shape has.
Writing: We will be combining writing and science this week. We will be learning all about spiders in science. For writing we will use what we have learned and write and informational narrative giving facts about spiders.
Science: We will be starting a spider unit for the next two weeks. We will be learning tons of spider facts. We will determine whether information we receive is a fact or an opinion. We will learn about the parts of a spider along with some key vocabulary words. We will also be doing some fun arts and crafts project to go along with the unit!
Grammar: We will be learning when it is the appropriate time to use a, an, and the.
**The Fall Festival is this Friday! There will be fun activities along with a silent auction!

Have a great weekend!
