It was such a busy and productive week in our class!
In writing we began drafting a personal narrative for our summer selfie activity. The kids are doing a great job and I can't wait for them to publish them at the end of next week!
In reading we began working on story elements of fiction books. This is a review from second grade. They are off to a fantastic start on that! We will continue that work next week.
Today, in their planners, they taped in their first spelling list and vocabulary list. You will find it on page 21 in their planner. We will have our spelling test over lesson 1 next Friday. Please take some time to study those words over the next week. There will not be sentences with that spelling list. They also received a list with ten vocabulary words. We will begin working with those words on Monday. We will study vocabulary unit one over the next two weeks. They will not take a quiz over those words until September 21st.
On my website there is a links section. There you will find spelling and vocabulary resources. There is a link to Spelling City. They are welcome to visit that over the weekend to practice their spelling words :) On Monday I will show them how to get to the vocabulary page and introduce them to the different games and resources on that.
Please remember that the notebooks should be returned to school on Monday. Many students have already brought their notebooks back and they look fantastic! It's so interesting to see how they decorate them because it is another way for me to learn more about them.
A few important dates coming up...
September 19th - Picture Day
September 21st - Parent Information Night from 6:00-7:45
I hope you have a wonderful weekend and are able to go out and enjoy this beautiful weather!
