    This week in Math (Envision): Complete Topic 1, making addition and subtraction stories.  Review on Thursday, test on Friday.  Timed Test #2 will be subtraction, not taken for a grade. Graded papers will be coming home tomorrow, if your child has a smiley face that means they got all of the answers correct. On the math workbook pages I only grade the side that says "Practice" on the top right.  The other side is Reteaching.  If your child doesn't bring home any graded papers, that means they did not turn in their assignments to me, their name was missing, or they had incomplete portions to complete. 
    This week in ELA (Wonders): Begin Unit 1 Week 1 Genre: Fantasy Oral Vocabulary Words: awkward, outrageous, panic, relief, squawked.  Phonemic Awareness: Phoneme Blending Phonics/Spelling: short a, i.  Grammar: Sentences & Questions, Capitalizations and Punctuation.  No Reading test this week.  Spelling/Word Work will  include 5 dictation sentences that include the weekly phonics  & grammar rules.
    New this year- we are NO longer required to give each weekly Reading test, as a grade level we have agreed to test on Week 2 and Week 4 of each unit, AND we are no longer required to give the big end of Unit Tests!  
    Science: We will be planting seeds this week and learning about parts of a sunflower plant.
