In Focus


This week, our In Focus lessons revolved around spreading kindness, making mistakes, and taking appropriate risks to challenge ourselves. Students brainstormed ideas to give “random acts of kindness” to their classmates and had fun surprising each other with notes and gestures of kindness. Hopefully, they will continue this practice throughout the year at school and at home. 

Reading


Whole-Group Lessons: This week, we read two articles from our Storyworks magazine. We used “The Children Who Escaped the Nazis” to help us practice making inferences and organizing information by the sequence of events. After reading “The Great  Stink,” we worked on building our technical vocabulary and providing text evidence.


Small-Group Lessons:  Students are working with leveled text during our guided reading lessons. While I am meeting with small groups, the other students are engaged in independent literacy activities.

Writing


This week in writing, we applied what we learned from our reading. We responded to reading by providing text evidence, making inferences, using new vocabulary words in sentences, and creating a timeline of events.

PBL


In PBL this week, we continued our study of animals and their sense receptors. The kids presented their animal projects and did an amazing job! I am proud of them for using the rubric and tools provided to accomplish this task.

Please send your child with some goodies to eat. Unfortunately, the kids will not be able to share treats with one another. Thank you for your understanding.

General Information


This classroom website is a great resource for finding out what we are up to weekly and throughout the year.  Please refer back often.

Our classroom is on the lower level-room L12; it can get chilly at times.  Feel free to send in a sweatshirt that your child can keep at school.

The kids eat lunch from 12:40-1:00, so we have snack time in the morning.  Please send in a healthy snack or two each morning as well as a water bottle.

At TTE, we do not celebrate birthdays with food or gifts for the kids in the class, so please do not send in treats of any type. We will celebrate in our room with a small gift, singing, and some specials privileges for the day. : )
