CPS just sent the proposed 5 instructional days that will be made up from the strike. These proposed days need to be approved by the Board of Ed who is meeting on November 20th. I want to share these days so that you can plan accordingly. Again, please note that these are not official- but just proposed.

Peak into this Week
Reading - We will be backtracking this week to review what our expectations and reading strategies are and how to reflect on them in our readers' response notebook. We will also be moving forward in learning strategies of how to break apart difficult words to read them fluently. We will also be paying attention to authors by reading like a writer, trying the different writing techniques they've read in their own writing, and noticing how an author connects parts of the story together to create an ending that can sometimes teach a lesson.
Math - I had originally planned on finishing up our place value unit up to the thousands and moving on to adding numbers up to the hundreds place. Unfortunately due to the strike, we are a bit behind. There will be a quiz this Wednesday, November 6th on place value of numbers up to the hundreds. Students should be able to write a number in standard form, word form, and expanded form. Students should also be able to name value of a number-- i.e. the six in 261 as sixty and should also be able to represent a number through base ten blocks.

Sickness Going on in the Classroom
We, unfortunately, have strep that is currently going around the classroom. If your child is feeling sick, please keep them home. The custodians and I will be deep cleaning the classroom to try to eliminate any germs being passed around.
