This Week’s Lessons:
English Language Arts (ELA):  English Language Arts (ELA):  This week we are reading a narrative nonfiction selection titled, “Bat Owns the Night.”  Our target skill is sequence of events and our target strategy is asking questions.  This is a great lead-in to Halloween!
English:  We’ll be looking at action verbs.
Spelling words: (Test next week) math, toast, easy, socks, Friday, stuff, paid, cheese, June, elbow, program, shiny, piles, sticky, each, both, comb, holiday
Vocabulary words:  twitch, swoops, squeak, echoes, detail, slithers, dozes, snuggles
Math:   We’ve finished our first chapter in our unit of multiplication, so your child has brought home a study guide that we completed in class.  The questions on the study guide are just like the questions on the test so if there are any questions that your child doesn’t understand, circle them and we can discuss them on Monday before our test.
We will be reviewing multiplication facts and strategies for the next few months.  It’s very important for your child to know their multiplication facts automatically, so I recommend practicing a little every day using flashcards and/or games.  There are lots of game websites listed down below to help the students practice their facts while having fun.
Social Studies: We’ve learned a lot about the early colonists, so we’re going to close out this unit with a test on Friday.  A study guide will be completed in class to help them prepare for the test.  The test will be open folder, so they are able to use all of their papers in their Social Studies folder to help them answer the questions.  
Science:  We’re finishing up learning about the forces created by magnets and electricity.  We’ll be reviewing this week, so we can take the test next week.
