December 5 Family Letter

December 5, 2017

Dear Families,

We are revising and editing during our Writer’s Workshop time, adding to our fictional series stories! Before the winter break, writers would like to share their creations! Please come and join us on Thursday, December 21st at 9:00 for our Writing Celebration! I hope you can make it.

In math we are learning about Fact Families. I am sending home the first set of fact triangles with a family letter on how to help guide your child in using these at home. We have sets in the classroom that your children practice with as well. Please have your child keep these at home and study them often! Automaticity with this set of facts will help your child to be more efficient in solving math problems as they get more difficult and become multi-step. Thank you for your help with this.

This Friday is Match Day! We talked as a class about including all in this spirit day. Rachel and I will both wear blue jeans and white-shirts for whoever would like to match us! If other students have planned outfits matching with friends, the rule is to include all who want to match you and your friends.

Take care and enjoy your week.

Jen
