Second-2-None: Week of 2/5/18

We hope everyone had a safe snow day! Because of the day off, we will have our Spelling test on Monday, February 12th. The Cursive Worksheet and Math 7.2 Homework will also be due on Monday, February 12th.

This week in Religion, we focused on the parts of the Mass and how we can participate during Mass now and as we get older. In Math, we took our Chapter 6 Test, where students demonstrated how much they knew about adding and subtracting three-digit numbers! This is a concept we will continue to review for the rest of the year in daily activities and Simple Solutions. We started Chapter 7; this chapter focuses on counting coins to find their value. So far, we have learned how to skip count to find the value of quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies. Please encourage your child to use this skill in their daily life (i.e. going through the drive through and finding the change needed or counting out change in the couch). In Science, we continued Unit 5, learning about adaptations in plants and animals. Students are now able to explain what an adaptation is and can give examples in both plants and animals.

In Spelling, we focused on long u words this week. This week’s newsletter secret to tell us on Monday is: snow day. In Shurley English, we continued working on classifying sentences with prepositional phrases. We practiced our jingles and reviewed common/proper and singular/plural nouns. We have also been reviewing and practicing editing sentences to look for capitalization and punctuation mistakes. In Phonics, we reviews r-controlled vowels, consonant blends, and consonant digraphs. We will be having a test on this next week. In Handwriting, we learned a few more lowercase cursive letters and have been able to write simple words on homework using what we know so far. In Reading, we continued Charlotte’s Web in preparation for our field trip to see the play. The skill we have been focusing on is identifying main characters and thinking of traits to describe them. We are them coming up with pieces of evidence from the text to support our claims. Our vocabulary is expanding with various adjectives and synonyms for traits!

Have a great weekend!

Literacy:

Our self generated topics for journal time has been going very well! We are impressed with the students ideas! Journal writing is the best true authentic way of assessing what the students are learning. We take and use all our skills in real meaningful writing! It is a joy to see this skill come to life in each child. Developmental milestones are occurring daily.  Keep these discussions going to help your child see that our spoken language can be written down to tell a story!

Math:

Decomposing numbers, taking them apart, has gone well! We will move onto writing number sentences. For example 2 +1=3. We will continue to use our classroom manipulatives to demonstrate this concept.

Religion/Science:

  • As a class, we decided on mac and cheese, another kindergarten favorite, (or any pasta and sauce) for our food pantry donation this month.  You can send this in at any time.  Our service project takes on life when the children are involved. We made a list of ideas and took a vote.  Talk to your child about what he/she would like to give to other children in need. When we serve others, we serve God. What great gift! We are doing God’s work!
  • Our senses tell us about the world God have given us. We will look at our sense of SMELL next week.
  • With the beginning of Lent upon us, look for a letter to be sent home on Wednesday to explain how we will look at Lent and how we can use this time to reflect on Jesus and His love for us!Lent is a time to get our hearts ready for Easter! We will attend Ash Wednesday Mass with our 8th grade buddies.  The ashes on our forehead will let everyone know that “we are friends of Jesus!”

Over these last few weeks since Christmas Break, the students have worked extremely hard to complete three projects! They worked hard in class to develop a project showing their comprehension of the book Because of Winn-Dixie. They shared these projects in class! They also wrote an informative paper about their Bottle Buddy, and transformed that paper into a speech for the class! They did an incredible job bringing their person to life. Finally, the students learned persuasive techniques, many of which we see during Super Bowl commercials. They put these techniques to good use when picking a product and creating a persuasive commercial! These commercials were displayed during Open House. We were so happy to see so many of your faces at Open House celebrating all of the wonderful things these fourth graders, as well as the whole school, have been working on!

 

Reading/Language Arts: Students have been working on developing tools to dissect informational texts. While reading, Skeletons: Inside and Out, the students explored how information is shared through text features, and how these help a reader to better understand the information in the text.They have also been looking at the 5 different structures that an informational text can be organized by: description, sequence, compare and contrast, cause and effect, and problem and solution. They have looked at how clue words, such as: similar, different, first, second, etc. can give clues about what the author is trying to say about the information they are providing. Students have also been exploring how to close-read a text, exploring a text on multiple levels looking at basic information you can gather as well as the information you can gather if you dig deeper as you read. We will be reading about earthquakes, volcanoes, and the ancient city of Pompeii in the coming weeks.

 

In Shurley English the students have been working on pronouns and conjunctions. The students are currently in unit 9 of spelling where we will be studying diphthongs (blended sounds) /oi/ and /ou/.

 

Math: Over the past month, the students have been practicing their division! Although a difficult chapter, the students are persevering and doing very well! They have practiced dividing with basic facts, dividing by two and three digit numbers, as well as dividing within a word problem. It is very important for the students to continue practicing their multiplication facts as that helps make division easier! Each class will be having their Chapter 4 test this week. After, we will skip ahead a few chapters to begin working on angles. The students will learn to classify angles, as well as use protractors to measure them! Looking forward to having fun in geometry!

 

Religion: Students will begin their study of the Ten Commandments. Each chapter will focus on just one. This week, the fourth graders will begin dissecting the First Commandment. They will get to read about our belief in the one true God, as well as ways we can worship and honor the one true God. The students will get the opportunity to think about their lives and the people in them, and how the things in our life help to put God first. Students are also learning about Ash Wednesday and its importance to our faith while preparing for the Mass next week. In Second Step we continue to look into how students can help themselves deal with the emotions and situations we discussed in unit 1. Throughout this unit students will gather methods and tools to help them navigate through life’s social situations.

 

Science: The students have been learning about what creates weather and how weather is shown on a weather map, through research students are learning about fronts, weather tools, wind patterns, and the water cycle. Later this week students will explore severe weather through videos, informational text, and hands on weather maps activity. They will explore the “recipes” that create this terrible storms and research certain famous storms to gather information about the destruction they cause and how we can be better prepared for these storms in the future. Over the next few weeks students will also be exploring the Winter Olympics, reading about certain sports and participating in STEM versions of some of these sports as well!

 

Social Studies: Time to explore our regions! We will begin studying each individual region. The students will get to learn the resources that come from that region, as well as the landforms and people from there. We will begin with the Northeast region. The students will explore the Niagara Falls, the Appalachian Mountains, and many more places. The students will get to explore the Appalachian Trail even deeper through a partner project in class! Each group will be assigned a different part of the trail. It will be their responsibility to research that part of the trail and show us, with detail, what that part looks like through drawing! These will be shared in class and hung up!

 

Thank you so much for your continued help and support.

It’s always a great day to be a cardinal!

This Week:

It was wonderful to see so many families at our Mass and Open House last Sunday! We have so much to be proud of here at St. Cletus! Our school families top that list! Your support of this endeavor makes it all worth while! Our children reap the benefits of our cooperative spirit!

Catholic Schools Week was so much fun! Jammies on Monday and reading with our 8th grade buddies was big fun! Celebrating Mass as a school family always is wonderful. The finishing event, the Red and White Volleyball game was great! Even with all the fun activities, we still managed to learn a thing or two! 🙂

Next Week:

Tuesday, February 6th is our 100th day of school! We hope you have seen all the growth your child has made! This is a year of much development and changes! Many teeth are missing, pants are too short and your child is getting more grown up each day! We are building independent, joyful children! We see it and we hope you do too! Please be sure to have your child count out the food item assigned to you. (letter went home on Monday) This needs to be in by Monday February 5th. We will celebrate this day by writing, singing, snacking and doing 100 jumping jacks, just to name a few fun things!!

Literacy:

  • The children are beginning to generate their own topics for writing during our journal time. Please help us with this at home by looking for writing topics as your child is going though his/her day. Can they journal about some activity? A fun meal or event? These ideas will be the topic for the following day! Talk to your child about what he/she can write about in their journal.

Math:

  • Counting by 2s, 5s, 10s and 1s.  Keep practicing at home!
  • Counting down to our 100th day! The children will participate in a day full of 100th day activities!
  • Addition: Getting ready to tackle addition takes much preparation! We “count on” to see how many more of things that we use in our classroom. We begin by “decomposing” numbers. For example, we can make 6 by putting 5 and 1 together, or 2 and 4 together. Seeing and manipulating items helps the students to understand this concept!

Religion/science:

  • We love looking at our senses as a way to experience God’s world! Next week we will look at our sense of touch. We will discuss different ways to describe how things feel and try to guess different objects only using our sense of touch.
  • Your child will be coming home with a meteorologist report. Each child takes a turn to tell us about the daily weather. Many students have done this already. Look in your child’s backpack daily to work on this fun learning experience!

Next week, we will review the concepts learned in Chapter 6 and take our test. This week’s newsletter secret is: sum and difference.

In Science, we started Unit 5. This unit will focus on the following essential questions: How do plants and animals need one another? How are living things adapted to their environment? Can plants survive in different environments? How do environments change over time? We will continue with the lessons next week. Our Sammy Soils are beginning to grow! This project will help us to remember the five basic needs of plants.

In Reading, we started Charlotte’s Web. This is in preparation for our field trip in a few weeks. Students have enjoyed learning about some characters and have been working on describing them using evidence, and citing text evidence to support their ideas. Next week, we will begin reading Chapter 6 and learn more about the plot. After our trip, we will be able to compare and contrast the text to the play!

In Shurley English, we classified sentences with adverbs, nouns, adjectives, article adjectives, verbs, and prepositions. Although the sentences we classify have become longer and more detailed, students have impressed us each and every day!

Next week, we will return to our normal Spelling routine, and the focus sound will be long u.

Have a wonderful weekend!
