Weekly News for November 18th-November 22th:
Reading: This week in reader's workshop we will continue to examine the author's purpose for writing informational texts. The guiding question we will ask ourselves is: What is the author trying to teach me? Later in the week we will think about word-solving strategies we can use when reading informational books.
Writing: In writing this week we will continue adding detailed reasons to support our opinions. We will spend some of our writing time this week writing persuasive advertisements for our goods and services made in social studies.
Math: In math we will apply our knowledge of addition problems to solve subtraction problems. One way we will do this is by using fact families. See image below.
Social Studies: This week we will produce our goods and services! In preparation students will think about all the resources they need, the price they'd like to charge, and the goods their consumers would be most interested in buying. At the end of the week students will apply their knowledge of opinion writing to write persuasive advertisements.
Class Volunteers Needed! Next Tuesday we will be setting aside some time to produce goods for our second grade market. While our class is still finalizing our ideas, we will likely need some help with things like creating books or a craft. If you're available from 1:00-2:00 Next Tuesday 11/19 please send me an email!
Second Grade Market: Please mark your calendars for our second grade market Tuesday, November 26th from 2:30-3:30. Each second grade classroom will create goods or services as a culmination of our first social studies unit on Economics. Students will sell these goods during our market with their proceeds going to a cause of their choosing.
At Home Reading Activities: Please read the linked calendar for ways to incorporate literacy into each day!
Winter Gear: As we begin to have colder weather please send your child in with warm outerwear and boots. We will go outside most days for recess! Additionally, please also send them with a change of shoes. Students are welcome to leave either an extra pair of boots or shoes here at school!
Scholastic Books Orders: If your child would like to order books this month please order online using our class code (P93YR) or send in your child's order to class. I will submit all orders at the end of the month.
Class Wish List: I have created a short amazon wish list of odds and end items that would benefit our classroom. I will be adding to this periodically as our classroom needs develop. Please click here to see our class list.
