Mr. Irving

Hello Families,

Class Happenings:

Right now, we are working through a unit on Fur Trade and the Government.  We are also building mental math skills through number talks, math games, and whiteboard review.  In Language Arts, we are working on 'hooking' the reader into our stories.  We want to start our writing using an interesting opening line or two.  We are also using reading strategies to connect to text, visualize the story, and predict what is going to happen next. 

Important Dates:

Nov. 9th - Photo Retakes 

Nov. 12th - No School (Remembrance Day) 

Nov. 15th - Rock Your Mocs Day

Homework:

Read 20 minutes every night

Play a math game to build mental math skills (addition/subtraction war, groups of 10, headbands)

Make observations of the world around you
