Language Arts

We continued to talk about nouns this week.  We reviewed them and talked about noun endings.  We learned how to spell words that have a consonant and then y at the end of the word.  We learned that in that case we have to change the y to i and add es.  We are going to continue this next week and learn what to do it there is a vowel and y.

We also worked on a practice Georgia Milestone reading test.  I modeled what to do and how to think through the questions.  I even missed a question!  We talked about how that is okay!  We are going to practice on our own next week.

We have been researching Paul Revere using our own devices as well as laptops in the classroom.  We are going to continue this next week, so continue to bring the devices.  :)

Math

This week we talked about 2- and 3-digit subtraction.  We used base 10 blocks to help us know when we needed to borrow and when we did not.  A lot of us did really well with the blocks.  They help us visually see what we need to do.  Once we had built a number and borrowed with the blocks, we were able to show this using paper and pencil much easier.  We are going to continue to practice this next week.

We are going to have a quiz on place value, rounding, and addition next Friday.

Notes and News

  • Conferences are next week.  Please let me know if you would like to meet, but did not sign up.  I still have times available.  I am looking forward to meeting with everyone!  Please also note that we have half days next Wednesday and Thursday due to conferences.  I must have a written note if your child is going home a different way.
  • Please make sure you are checking your child’s agenda every night. This is where we write down our homework and upcoming tests.  I check their agenda each day to see if it is signed.  Encourage your child to be responsible and bring their agenda to you to sign; however, if you do not see it, please ask your child to see it.
