Weekly Newsletter – October 5

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend despite the gross weather on Saturday. My husband and I went to Columbus to visit my parents and go apple picking. Apple picking turned into running into the market and buying already picked apples, thanks to the cold! Either way still a great weekend. We have a lot going on the next few weeks so make sure to read through everything! Here is what is happening this week:


What We Are Learning:

English: This we are learning how to write a good paragraph and we are using hamburgers to illustrate that. We want to make sure that we have all the details to make the paragraph good!

Math: We are continuing to work on estimating and rounding this week, along with three digit addition.

Reading: We are starting a new unit this week. For the next month we will be reading Ramona Quimby, Age 8 as a class. This is one of my favorite books and I am so excited to share it with your student!

We are almost done!
