Please have your child wear their blue Tritt shirt tomorrow for the Tritt Tiger Dash Kick Off! Also, check your child’s folder for more information. There will be a collection envelope with detailed instructions on the back. Please read over carefully. Our PTA has worked hard to organize this fundraiser so that our school can keep 100% of the money donated for your child’s education. Please support our fundraiser!
Quick note- our specials time has changed due to other grades testing this week. We will go from 9-9:45. Our lunch will remain the same for this week, but will be different next week. I’ll let you know the change in time as it gets closer.
In math we are working with coins and bills. We will identify and count groups of coins. We will also apply our problem solving strategies to solve word problems involving money. For HW your child should practice the Understand and Plan & Solve steps. It would be beneficial if you had them explain using their words how they used their strategy to solve the word problems.
In reading, we continue to read nonfiction multiparagraph text asking who, what, when, where, why, and how pulling out key details. We are also identifying the main point of each paragraph as well as the main idea of the entire passage.
In writing we are going through the writing process writing a personal narrative of choice. We will brainstorm and write a draft this week. In our drafts, we’ll include a hook and sensory details that help paint a picture for the audience.
In Word Work we are learning how to appropriately use an apostrophe in contractions and possessive nouns. We’ll review irregular plural nouns before we take an assessment at the end of the week.
In content we continue to learn about the regions of GA and the connection to the Creeks, Cherokees, and Sequoya. We will also learn how their government is similar to and different from ours.
In STEM will continue to work on our science standard of how about of day light differs with the seasons and its effect on trees. We will imagine, plan, and build a model of the summer tree we observed a few weeks back. We’ll use this model to observe the same tree throughout the school year.
