Our Learning Weeks 3 and 4!
We have had a couple of busy weeks! Last week we went on a field trip to the Wildlife Refuge in Bowdoinham. It was a lot of fun! We also had a great turn out at the Back to School Cookout. It was great to see all who came! In math, we have been learning about minimum, maximum, median, mode and range. We have also been working on partial-sums and trade-first algorithms for adding and subtracting 3-digit numbers. Reading has been going well. We have been reading just right books. We have also been growing our thinking in our readers notebook by thinking about our characters and the story and writing our thoughts. Students are onto their second story in writing. They have chosen some wonderful moments to write about! We start NECAP testing tomorrow, October 1. Make sure your child is getting enough sleep, eating a good breakfast, and bringing a good snack. Stress the importance of this test and tell them to do their very best! Friday, October 4 is a Professional Development Day, so no school for students. Thank you for all of your support making sure math and reading homework gets done each and every night! ((I will post pictures soon! Stay tuned!))
