9/25/17  - 9/29/17

 

Thank you to those who came in for a conference. If you would still like to come in to discuss your child’s progress, or have any questions, please let me know in advance and I will stay after school to meet with you.

 

In social studies, we will begin our study of maps. We will be learning about symbols, a compass rose, cardinal directions, the shape of VA and where Richmond and Washington DC are located.

 

In math, we have been working on patterns. Patterns can be repeating (red, blue,green/ red, blue, green) and/or growing (1, 1,2, 1,2,3, 1,2,3,4). Help your child recognize patterns in the world. You can find them on clothing, floors, and many places in the world.

 

As you read with your children at night, be sure to discuss the story structure. Have them tell you the characters, setting, beginning, middle and end of the story. I know that I’ve asked that you not to hover too much over homework, but please be sure that they are capitalizing the beginning of sentences and putting the correct punctuation.

 

** Family Game Night - Tuesday, the 26th. If you haven’t returned the signup form, please contact Mrs. Campbell.

 

**Picture day is October 4th. A flyer was sent home last week. If you did not get one, let us know and we will send one home.

 

** Be sure to read the letter regarding a field trip coming up October 10th. Please sign both forms and return them as soon as possible.

Thank you,

Mrs. Bumgarner
