In Math this week we are going to start learning how to do story problems. We will learn what key words we need to look for in order to figure out if we need to add the numbers together or take them apart.
We are still going to Mrs. Parsons' class for Science this week. We continue to learn about germs and ways to keep ourselves healthy at home and at school.
Our letters to the Soldiers in Afghanistan have been written and we are sending out all of our gum. Thank you to everyone who donated! A special thanks goes to the Hobson family who donated 200 packs of gum! The Soldiers will be very excited to receive their gifts.
In reading we are starting a story about Firefighters and their role at the firestation. We met Firefighter Dan earlier in the year, it will be neat to read about the things that he does in our reading book. Along with our reading, we will be learning compound words (two small words put together to make one larger word). Have your child look aound the house for compound words... Examples: livingroom, bedroom, bathroom, highchair, etc.
