Quarter 1, Week 5

August 26th - August 30th:

This week, we will cover the following in each subject...and much, much more!

Math

  • Understand that the three digits of a three-digit number represent amounts of hundreds, tens, and ones (ex: 706 equals 7 hundreds, 0 tens, and 6 ones)
  • Count within 1000; skip-count by 5s, 10s and 100s
  • Read and write numbers using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form
  • Compare two 3-digit numbers based on meanings of the hundreds, tens, and ones using >, =, < symbols to record the results of comparisons
  •  

Language Arts

  • Describe how words and phrases (ex: regular beats, alliteration, rhymes, repeated lines) supply rhythm and meaning in a story, poem, or song 
  • Use information gained from the illustrations and words in a print or digital text to demonstrate understanding of its characters, setting, or plot
  • Write narratives in which a well-elaborated event or short sequence of events is recounted and includes details to describe actions, thoughts, and feelings; use temporal words to signal event order; and provide a sense of closure

Research

  • Understand the relationship between sound and vibrating objects
  • Illustrate how sound is produced by vibrating objects and columns of air
  • Summarize the relationship between sound and objects of the body that vibrate - eardrums and vocal cords

We need...

  • Empty cans (we are making drums)
  • A parent volunteer to make 2nd grade copies for an hour a week 
  • Box of Cheese-its or Goldfish 

Agendas:

Our Agendas have arrived and will be added into our "Take Home" binders. Each day, your child will evaluate his/her effort and give him/herself a numeric level (1-4) for each subject (Math, Reading, Writing, & Research.)

Please note that the Effort Level is what your child perceives as how much effort he or she has given and is not indicative of actual mastery of the subject. 

Reading Logs:

It's very important that your child spends at least 15 minutes a day reading independently or being read to. Record your child's time on the Reading Log located in the "Take Home" binder. The Logs are checked weekly (the days vary)

Fall Pictures:

We take our Fall pictures this Tuesday, August 13th.

Open House is this Thursday, August 15th starting at 6:00 p.m. There will be a presentation to explain our daily schedule, homework, grading standards, and other school & classroom particulars.

Quarter 1, Week 2

Thank you for helping your child fill their personality bags. It really helps create a classroom community and students loved sharing about themselves! 

Leader In Me:

Last year, Lake Myra won a grant from the Franklin Covey Foundation to be a "Leader In Me" school. There is only one other in Wake County, A.B. Combs, which is also the first one ever. World-wide there are now 1000 schools who participate. Throughout the year, your child will learn the 7 habits of being a leader. To find out more about the program, you can visit "The Leader In Me" website (http://www.theleaderinme.org/what-is-the-leader-in-me/)

Mail: 
Please check your child's backpack nightly for any updated newsletters or information from the school. This past week, school picture information were sent home. Your child will bring home every Friday weekly homework and morning work. Please keep or recycle! : )
