REMINDERS: Tomorrow is a NO UNIFORM DAY and SACK LUNCH DAY! :)
We had a FUN DAY filled with science activities. We did a plant exploration outside this morning. This afternoon we enjoyed a nice walk to the Eisenhower Center and found lots of leaves, seed pods, etc. Reminder: Plant Poster Due Tuesday, October 13.
I'm also really excited to share that the class FILLED THE MARBLE JAR!!! So tomorrow they will vote on a class reward! :) I'm so proud of their good behavior! :)
Reading/Language Arts: Our essential question is: How can problem solving lead to new ideas? We've been working on complete sentences, types of sentences, subjects and predicates. Spelling Test tomorrow!

We're continuing to learn about multiplication, using tape diagrams and the commutative property of multiplication. Some students are struggling with basic addition and subtraction facts, these need to be practice so they are ready for multiplication. This is something you can help with at home.
Religion: October is the month of the rosary. We'll be talking about Mary, St. Therese, and the mysteries of the rosary. We enjoyed a surprise visit from Father Peter yesterday morning. He even joined us to play 4-square at recess! We attended mass yesterday and will again next Wednesday. I shared a story called "Why Am I Here?" by Matthew Kelly earlier in the week. The students are trying to think before making decisions and we're all working on being the best versions of ourselves! :)
We're continuing our unit on community. We are halfway through our "Think First and Stay Safe" safety program. Today we talked about dignity and respect. We learned that everyone is unique and God loves us and made us in His image. The students have a list of safety tips for parents (yellow page) in planners this evening.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
