November 9 - 13, 2015
WEDNESDAY, November 11th is Veterans' Day. There will be no school.
Welby Way will have shortened days this week. Monday, Thursday and Friday school hours will be from 8:00 - 12:30. Students will have one recess from 9:50 until 10:10. Students riding the bus will leave WW at 12:30. The cafeteria will serve lunch at 12:30.
Conferences will continue all week. Thank you for being prompt and having your questions ready. Students will take home the report card and work folders to share with parents. Return the report card signed and all papers. Many students will continue to work on the narrative writing assignment that goes home in their paperwork. Read the narrative and the checklist. Have a conversation with your child about the writing and then be sure to return it this week.
Due to the shortened days, studies will emphasize the language arts and math. Students should be reading well over 45 minutes at home each day this week.
Language Arts. Students will continue to read Island of the Blue Dolphins at home and in the classroom. The next quiz will be on Friday morning.
Math. We will continue with division. Students need to know their multiplication facts well in order to make sense of division concepts. This week we will use the standard algorithm for division.
Social Studies. Explorers. Students will map the routes of several different explorers that made their way to North America - specifically the West Coast.
Science rotations will begin next week.
