Learning Targets:
I can spell plural nouns by adding -s and -es to singular nouns.
I can use robust vocabulary in speaking and writing.
I can read and write biographies.
I can identify and use various non-fiction text features and resources.
I can identify the simple subject and simple predicate in a sentence.
*Lesson 4 Spelling & Vocabulary will be assessed on Friday, 9/28.
**Spelling & Vocabulary words can be found on School-Home Connection letters which are sent home on Mondays. Spelling words can also be found written in your child's planner each week.  If your child spells 95% of words correctly on the pretest, missing 1 or 0, he/she will be given a challenge list from which to study.  Students with a challenge list will receive a 100% for their weekly assessment, as long as they spell their 1 missed word correctly- if that is the case.  Spelling Choice Boards or Tic-Tac-Toe boards will come home on Monday of each week.  They will be due that Friday.  These will offer students a choice in the way they practice their spelling words at home.  If you or your child thinks of a different way to practice writing all 20 words, then please do so and be sure to share!  

I can add and subtract multi-digit numbers with and without regrouping.
I can use rounding and estimating in problem solving.
I can use mental math strategies (rounding and estimating) to add and subtract multi-digit numbers.
**Students will not receive daily math homework.  We are getting into the routine of Math Workshop, and your child will spend each day this week learning about the procedures, while practicing the targeted skills. Please encourage your child to practice addition and subtraction facts at home, as those should be automatic. 
Social Studies- 

I can research and learn information about the community of Murrysville.

I can research different types of communities and discuss attributes of each.

Class Dojo
ClassDojo is a website/app which allows teachers like myself give immediate feedback to my students on their behaviors. Students get awarded points for positive behaviors and points earn student rewards! My hope is that ClassDojo will bring all of us closer, and will help you to understand your child's progress on a week to week basis.
