 Our new unit is basic facts and relationships. The chapter's essential question: How can you use patterns and strategies to find sums and differences for basic facts? Each lesson has its own essential question:


3-6 What are some ways to remember differences?

3-7 How does getting to 10 in subtraction help when finding differences?

3-8 How are bar models used to show addition and subtraction problems?

3-9 How are number sentences used to show addition and subtraction situations?


This week we start a new unit on Animal Discoveries. The big idea for the unit is: How do animals play a part in the world around us?  The essential question for the week is: How do animals survive? This week two realistic fiction stories will be read:" A Visit to the Desert" and "Sled Dogs Run".

You can expect homework Monday-Thursday.  The students will receive a Binder Reminder the first day of school.  In the Binder Reminder your child will write down the homework for the day. Besides nightly homework, a student might bring home unfinished work to complete.


Your child has been provided with all necessary supplies for use in the classroom. Students may bring to class:

 *a pencil sharpener with a cover 


If you would like to contribute to our classroom supplies, these items may be brought in throughout the year.


*pencils (#2)

*zip lock bags (gallon, quart, and sandwich)
