Room 30 News

  

Can you believe that October is really here?    

Literacy – We have begun our Reader’s and Writer’s workshop.  The students are all busy reading books at their level.  The students are also responding to literature to build comprehension skills.  We learned how to roll up our sleeves when we get to tricky words.  We also learned how to build up our stamina while reading.  We are busy learning about different types of sentences.  We learned how to start a sentence with a capital letter and end with ending punctuation.  We use C.O.P.S to help us check our work.  We are very busy writing about small powerful moments in our writing unit of study! 

 

Math  -   In math we are now busy learning about place value to 100.  We use groups of 100’s, 10’s and 1’s to show a given 3-digit number.  Later on this month we will work our way up to learning about place value to 1000.

 

Students should practice math facts daily to help solve problems accurately as well as quickly.  Please remember to use the math website to reinforce skills.  Your child’s user name and password came home.

Social Studies – We are currently working on our unit on Government.  We learned about the Constitution and our Flag.  We will begin to work on map and globe skills.
