Mrs. Duffy

               I am so proud of the students' great work during the first month of school!  Throughout the month of September we spent time establishing routines and expectations, learning new curriculum, and getting to know each other a little better!  We have built a safe and happy classroom community.



Here's what's coming up in our class:

*  Math:  Mental math using estimation and rounding (Example:  52 + 34 --> 52 + 30 = 82....add 4 more = 86).

*  Language Arts: Character Study using examples and evidence from a story to support theories about character traits and character motivation (Example:  We know Opal in Because of Winn-Dixie is kind-hearted because she saves Winn-Dixie from being sent to the pound, she hopes the mouse landed in the soft grass, and she invites the librarian to be her friend).

*  Word Study:  Students will continue their word study by finding patterns with spelling and sounds.  It is important that students complete their nightly word study assignment to solidify their understanding.

*  Science:  We will explore the life cycles of plants and animals!
