Welcome to another week of cold weather! Continue to have your child bundled up each day. We are hoping to get out if wind chills aren’t cold enough to peel the skin off our faces!! This week we are finishing up our Inventor Book Groups in ELA. The kids are working on the skill of finding the Main Idea in chapters. In small groups, we are continuing to practice finding the text structure of articles as well as finding the Main Idea. Their booklet is their assessment for the books. We will be reading another Who Was book to compare to our Inventor Who Was book afterwards. In Science, we are off to a great start with our Invention Convention. Each class has landed on a problem they face- One class went with how to keep siblings out of their rooms and the other group went with the problem of the toilet paper roll never being replaced when it is finished. I love both problems!!! We will have a special guest come in next week. Brady’s mom from Miss Monroe’s class is coming to talk about the patents that she and Brady’s grandpa have received and the process that they go through when they have an invention! We are looking forward to that!!!

Tonight’s Homework:

Reading- Read at least 20 minutes

Science- Volcano vocab and diagram quiz on Friday. There are 15 words on notecards and the diagram of the volcano is in their notes. We practice each day with the words!!

Math- Review what you know worksheet with the circled problems only!
