Greetings!

Once again, our week was filled with learning, activities, and opportunities! We turned our focus to addition in the world of Math! Students were introduced to three different properties of addition: Commutative, Identity, and Associative. See if your kiddo can explain their favorite property! Also, we used our newly acquired rounding skills to estimate numbers before finding the sum. We learned that estimated numbers are “about” or “close to” other given numbers. In ELA, the kiddos were introduced to a new silent letter -mb! The kiddos practiced applying this new sound all week. Their favorite activity was spelling as we pulled out an oldie and played Sparkle! For our reading concept, we wrapped up the author’s purpose and will start learning the main idea of a passage next week! In grammar, we learned that we have FOUR types of sentences! The kiddos learned the difference between imperative sentences and Declarative sentences. Ask your child what the difference is! Next week, we will dive into the last 2 sentence types. And of course, we learned a new letter in cursive, lowercase d.

This week in deep dives, we focused on National Parks all week as we had a big project to accomplish! The students crafted posters and a video to Wheeling Park to get their idea of RocksAnne the Snake approved! RocksAnne the Snake is a snake built of painted rocks and it can be as long as it wants because anyone can add on to it! We do not want to give too much away as the kiddos did make a video explaining what this project could be! Please have your child bring in a rock (size of palm) next Monday, September 25th to start this process! This project is pending approval; We will let you all know if our project is approved! Regardless, we will still hold class at our Wheeling Park Middle School Campus on October 10th.
