Mrs. Maranto’s Weekly News
October 16, 2017
Homeroom: Monday, October 16th is our field trip to The Morton Arboretum in Lisle, Illinois. The busses will leave for the field trip promptly at 8:45 a.m. Please, make sure your child is at school on time.
This is an outdoor field trip. Students need to dress accordingly for the weather. We will eat a picnic lunch at the arboretum before we return to school. Each child needs to bring his/her own lunch in a disposable bag.
Reading: This week we will learn about point of view. We will compare stories written in different points of view and practice writing in different points of view.
Language Arts: The children will write the final copy of their narratives this week. They will share their stories with the class on Wednesday. In addition to that, we will begin a short unit on nouns.
Spelling: This week we are on lesson 6. The pretest will be on Monday with the posttest on Friday.
Math: This week we will begin chapter 2. This chapter covers long division with single and multi-digit divisors. Please, continue to practice the multiplication facts at home with your child.
Social Studies: This week we will begin learning how the Spanish settle in the southwest.
Science: We will begin a new Stemscope unit on plants and the transfer of energy. This unit correlates with our field trip to arboretum.
