-We will continue to discuss the differences between facts and opinions and try to recognize each in our daily reading.
-Students will also work on centers for independent reading, writing, and spelling.

Writing: Brainstorming will begin for our next big writing assignment which will be about what we are thankful for. We will also work on writing with Doodle Loops and Story Sparkers.

STUDY ISLAND:
Please be sure to have your child practicing on Study Island as much as possible from home. It is a program that has been PROVEN to help students learn at an accelerated pace when used properly and often.

A Few notes about Halloween:
-Rogus Fall Festival and Annual Halloween Parade will be on Friday, October 31, 2014.
-The 1st through 4th Grade Parade will be from 1:15-1:30.
-1st/2nd Grade Party will be from 1:40-2:20.
-Parents will NOT be allowed to sign out students after the parties. Volunteers will leave after volunteering and students will go home as they usually do.
-PLEASE DO NOT SEND ANY CANDY INTO SCHOOL. IT IS NOT ALLOWED AND STUDENTS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO PASS IT OUT. -Thank you.

Math Fact Practice:
Please have your child go on xtramath.org daily to practice their math facts. You can write the time down on their logs that they are practicing on this website. If they finish a session, they can always log off and log back on in the same day. They will need either your email address that you used to sign them up or my email address which is lcoverick@summithill.org
They will type their first name.
Then they will need their pin number.
Every time a student passes an operation they will receive a certificate and a rubber ducky as their reward!
Thank you for your support.

We have a date for our Thanksgiving Musical, “The Turkeys are Going on Strike!” Our musical will be on Friday, November 21st.
