Mrs. Piatt’s Weekly Newsletter
*This week’s spelling list includes singular and plural possessives. The words can be challenging in the fact that students have to know the meanings of the words and how to spell them correctly as used in sentences. In order to help with studying at home, I’ve sent a typed list of sentences that go with each spelling word along with the regular lists. Thank you for your support in helping your child to prepare for these tests!
*Our class will be exchanging valentines on Valentine’s Day. If your child is choosing to exchange valentines, we have 25 students in our class. If your child chooses some sort of valentines with candy or some sort of snack, please be sure to send the store bought package information so that we have the ingredient list. Thank you!

What are we learning this week?
English Language Arts (ELA): Everyone really did such a fantastic job with “Because of Winn-Dixie” last week. Comprehension tests and TDAs will be coming home! Please be sure to see ALL of your child’s hard work! This week, we’ll practice summarizing skills and dig deeper into the compare/contrast text structure.
Math: The Chapter 9 math tests will be coming home! The students did an outstanding job with fraction concepts. We’re headed into a unit on decimals next. We’ll learn more about how decimals are part of the Base 10 number system in so many ways.
Social Studies: We are hard at work on our travel brochures. We’ll also spend some time learning about natural resources and renewable/non-renewable resources.
