Week 10 October 16 – 20, 2017
30 Phonogram review and test. Please spend time going over the phonograms, orally and written. Students are not doing well on phonogram tests and at this point all phonograms should be mastered.
Spelling words for this week should be in your child’s blue folder in a sheet protector. The list should be kept in the blue folder at all times as we use it in class. Please review sentence homework and worksheets. There should not be a significant amount of errors if the work is being checked at home.
The story for the week is The Ox Who Won the Forfeit in A Flint Holds Fire. Students should be reading a minimum of 15 minutes aloud daily. The more fluent a reader is the more able they are to comprehend what they read.
Concepts for the week include:
· Adding Three or More Single-digit Numbers
· Telling & Showing Time to Five Minute Intervals, Identifying a.m. and p.m. and Identifying the Number of Minutes in a Day
· Identifying Place Value to Hundreds and Writing Three-digit Numbers in Expanded Form
People Grow and Change is our next unit. Please keep all worksheets that come home to use for studying. Tentative test date is November 8th.

Marks on papers – you may see a lot of comments and corrections on work. It is important that students read these and work on things I am suggesting. Proper letter formation is expected. Some abbreviations you may see are:
sp – spelling and/or spacing E.C. – extra credit CT – completed together Inc – incomplete
redo – work should be redone and turned back in
Box Tops and Labels for Education – please collect these! This is a great way for the school to earn extra money.
The fastest way to contact me is via email. I will respond within 24 hours. You can also send notes on the green sheet.
