Testing is DONE! Your children were troopers and did an awesome job enduring those exhausting 3 days! Now, onto our last week of school before Cobb County’s Fall Break, September 26th through September 30th.
Tuesday, September 20th: Rally against Cancer! Kickball Game: Tritt vs. Mt. Bethel- 4:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. at Walton High School. Please buy your tickets and attend this very worthy cause!
Thursday, September 22nd: Field Trip to Bahama Bucks!
Our Week At A Glance:
Reading: This week we will be comparing and contrasting Fiction and Nonfiction books. We will be reading examples of each and will be discussing the purposes and characteristics of both. For their 20 minutes of reading each night, please try to cycle in some nonfiction, as well! In class we read individually, with partners, with groups and as a whole group.
Writing: As we usher in the glorious season of fall, we will be writing and celebrating all of the things we love about this fun-filled season!
Phonics: We will have our first Spelling Test this Friday, the 23rd! If you know your child will not be in school that day, please tell me so that I can have him/her take it Thursday afternoon. This will be helpful in assessing the l-blend, r-blend and s-blend words we have been working on. I will also be assessing the short vowel sounds that we have been working on! Please look for these words in the Red Homework folder, Monday.
S.T.E.M. We have been having fun learning about the water cycle. Ask your child to recite the “Water Cycle” song we have been learning. This week we will have more fun with water and will start planning for our next S.T.E.M. project, which will be to design and create a water container that prevents evaporation.
Enjoy the rest of your weekends!
