September 10th – 14th

Hello Parents,

Spalding: Students will be sent home with their homework packet on Monday night and then asked to spell their words three times each night. We will have a 30 word spelling test and a written phonogram quiz next Friday. Make sure you are reviewing phonograms 1-70 with your students at home.

Math: This week we will begin adding and subtracting 3-digit numbers. Continue to do XtraMath each night, your scholar is expected to complete XtraMath 5 times this week.

Science: We will begin a new science unit on magnetism this week. Make sure that your students are writing two COMPLETE sentences in their journal to get full credit for homework. We will have a quiz on Friday to review the material.

Reading: In class we will begin reading The Hundred Dresses written by Eleanor Estes. Please continue to read with your students for 20 minutes each night. You may let them read any book at home. As we continue developing their reading skills in the classroom it is so helpful to have this reinforced at home. If you are looking for good books to read at home, please email one of us and we can give you a list!

Poetry: On Friday your student brought home a copy of the poem we are beginning to memorize in class.  Please help them to work on memorizing the poem for recitation.

Bed in Summer
By: Robert Louis Stevenson

In winter I get up at night
And dress by yellow candle-light.
In summer, quite the other way,
I have to go to bed by day.
I have to go to bed and see
The birds still hopping on the tree,
Or hear the grown-up people’s feet
Still going past me in the street.
And does it not seem hard to you,
When all the sky is clear and blue,
And I should like so much to play,
To have to go to bed by day?

Please sign and return yellow folders on Monday.  You may keep all completed work at home.
