Class Note:

Dear Parent,

This week we'll ask, "What might cause a story character to change?"  In the humorous fiction story Officer Buckle and Gloria, we'll read about the teamwork between a police officer and his dog.  We'll read about a different kind of teamwork in the play Safety at Home.  

This week's phonic skills are compound words; schwa vowel sound (was).  Our vocabulary strategy is dictionary entry.  Our comprehension skill is cause and effect-tell how one event makes another happen.  Our Comprehension strategy monitor/clarify-find ways to figure out what doesn't make sense.  Our writing focus is to persuade-opinion paragraph.  In math we will model regrouping for 2-digit subtraction using take apart strategy.  Science we will continue Cell two The Earth's Surface as we conduct investigations to explore the properties of rocks, gravel, soil, and sand, in order to further their understanding of the components of the Earth's Surface.  In Social Studies we will continue to learn about our community as we read and discuss leaders and our Country's government. In Religion we will read and discuss and celebrate the season of Christmas.     

Have a wonderful week!

Many thanks, 
Mrs. Rosenfelder
