This week in language arts, students will read a realistic fiction story called "Jamaica Louise James". In this story, eight-year-old Jamaica loves to paints pictures after her mother and grandmother give her a set of paints for her birthday. On her grandmother's birthday, she and her mother descend the stairs of the subway station where Grammy works in a token booth. As a surprise for her, they tape Jamaica's artwork on the walls, transforming the gloomy station into a colorful gallery that makes the once-frowning subway riders smile. Needless to say, Grammy and all of her customers are delighted with the results. Students will focus o making inferences and looking for clues that help us understand more about the characters in the story. Our spelling lesson will focus on words spelled with the long "e" sound.
In math, Chapter 12 will help reinforce subtracting 2-digit numbers that require regrouping. Please continue to have your child practice their math facts using Mathzor (www.Mathzor.com). Just ten minutes a day will greatly help your child learning their basic math facts.
The week of November 28th - December 2nd will be our final regular week of school. The following two weeks will be minimum days with dismissal at 1:05pm to accommodate parent/teacher conferences.
I look forward to a great week of learning.
