  Four more weeks until Christmas! Can you believe it? Time sure flies!  In French Language Arts, we continue to review questions/oral structures from previous weeks and we are learning how to say what is in our community and discuss different modes of transportation. We are also learning Christmas vocabulary and will be writing a short Christmas story soon as well as a letter to Santa. Students are very excited as they love to write! I have great authors in my class!      In Math, we will keep reviewing our numbers from 0-1000.  We will continue to work on representing numbers in different ways, skip counting, and ordering numbers.  Please remember to practice addition facts each night and check out the addition games that I posted in the "Web " link.   Bonne semaine les amis!

In French this week, we will continue be talk about our favorite hobbies/pastime. Oral structures may include:Je joue .. Je promène mon chien au parc.Je magasine au centre d’achat avec…In math, students will continue to represent numbers to 1000 in different ways and they will work on basic math facts and mental math strategies.  Students will have an addition quiz on Thursday.  They will have 1 minute to answer as many addition facts that they can.  There will be 15 facts.  They will also have a numbers quiz from 0-1000.Reports cards went out today and I must say that I am so proud of each and every one of my students! Vous êtes fantastiques!!!

We are now beginning a mathematics unit on Numbers to 1000.  In this unit, your child will: ·         Show a 3-digit number in different ways, using concrete materials, pictures, words, and numbers. ·         Compare and order 2-digit and 3-digit numbers. ·         Skip count by 5s, 10s, and 100s forward and backward to 1000. ·         Skip count by 3s, 4s, and 25s forward and backward to 1000. ·         Estimate how many items are in a large collection by comparing it to a known  quantity.   Example: Show ten buttons - If this is 10 buttons, how many are in this big pile of   buttons?   Here are some activities you can do at home to support this learning:               -  Use play money to model numbers and to develop understanding of trading or                  grouping. For example, show that $34 can be modeled as $300 + $40 + $2. Using                   play bills for $1, $10, and $100 helps to reinforce place value.                - Play a number comparison game: Remove the tens and face cards from a deck of                  regular playing cards.  Deal 3 cards to each player.  Each player uses the cards                  to make the greatest possible 3-digit number. The person with the greater number                  gets a point. Repeat. The first player to get 10 points is the winner. Play the                   game again, this time making the least number possible.      Students will also work on basic facts. They will be using various mental math   strategies to help them recall the facts quickly. They will learn to apply mental math      strategies such as :            -  Doubles (Ex: If I know that 6+6=12, then 7+6 is one more, so it would be 13).            -  Commutative Property (For 3+9, think 9+3. They give the same answer).            -  Making 10 (Ex: 8+6 – Think 8 + 2 + 4; 8 + 2 = 10, then 10 + 4 = 14).

Our math test that I planned on giving tomorrow will be postponed until next Tuesday as we had students abssent  from class yesterday and today.  I would like to continue to review concepts with ALL students before giving the "Patterns" test.  There will be no homework tomorrow as it is Halloween! I will send a final "Patterns" practice sheet for homework on Monday.  Joyeuses Halloween! Stay tuned for Halloween pictures.....

Starting this week, students will read the same books for 2 nights instead of reading new books each night. I encourage rereading books to increase accuracy and fluency each time the book is read.  Each Monday and Wednesday, I will send home one leveled book seen during a Guided Reading session and one "Good Fit" book based on their interests. Happy reading!
