Week of October 19-23

Math- Kindergarten and 1st grade is working on beginning subtraction and subtraction story problems. 2nd grade is working on two step word problems and mixed word problems. Be sure that 1st and 2nd grade math homework is turned in by Monday each week.  Continue to turn in homework on Mondays.  SUMDOG.COM- this is a new math app we've been using. Log ins are first name, password: abc, school code: wp5. Students are encouraged to work on this at home. Many students are still being tested by the program to find their level, so please don't help out with this. After they complete 200 questions, the students will be completing activities at their level. 

Literacy- Kindergarten PALS assessment will start Oct. 12th and run through the following week.  Please have your child read the book in their book bag to you each night and return it each morning. Literacy groups are working on story mapping/summarizing stories. Remember to sign the log and write down the book they read. 1st and 2nd grade will be focusing on summarizing and story maps to help with comprehension. Mrs. Stahl's groups new sight words are: all, in, some. I will be continuing with PALS testing all of next week. The results will be communicated with you at conferences.
