          Monday, October 16th, we conclude our IOWA testing.  If anyone was absent for one of the testing days, Tuesday, October 17th will be the make-up day.  This week we will be reading Tara and Tiree Fearless Friends, by Andrew Clements. This is a literary nonfiction story.  We are focusing on cause and effect and summarizing for our comprehension skill and strategy.  Our phonics skill this week are the r-controlled vowels ar, or, ore, oar.  For grammar we are discussing nouns. 
          We will be continuing Topic 3 in math this week.  This topic focuses on adding within 100 using various strategies. Please make sure that your child knows their basic math facts and doubles math facts to ensure their success in the topic. Our math test on Topic 3 will be Monday, October 23rd.  Again, if you are noticing your child struggling with anything, please let me know in case I am not seeing the struggle in the classroom.
         We will continue with Unit 2 in religion this week.  A big focus of this unit is the Ten Commandments.  The students will be completing a classroom project on the Ten Commandments. Their Unit 2 test will be Tuesday, October 24th. 
          We are continuing to learn and discuss the different animal groups that are vertebrates and invertebrates. The students are learning about their similarities and differences, their methods of defense, where they live, etc. The students will be completing a fun animal project during this chapter. This test is scheduled for Wednesday, October 25th.
