Hello Olivia Park Families,


Happy Friday!

If you didn’t make it to pick a supplies Wednesday, you can pick supplies up in the office from 9-4pm. 


Reading – We continue to explore visualizing as a reading comprehension strategy to help us better understand our story and self-monitor. Students will have a chance to practice visualizing and connecting to the text with a few great read-alouds. In addition, we’ll begin to explore inferring by describing how characters feel.


Writing- We continue to explore the work of professional authors to learn from them what we can do to generate ideas to write about. Next, we will explore the writing process. We’ll take a finished draft through all the steps of the writing process including revising, editing and publishing.


Math- Lessons and assignments will work on building fluency for multiplications and divisions for 2s, 5s, 9s and 10s. Students will also work on solving and writing equations for word problems. This week we will also learn about 3s multiplications and divisions and use the area model for multiplications.


Star testing will continue next week with Math. We will follow the same testing plan and have small groups of students test after the shortened class meeting time. Any make-up testing will take place as we go and be completed the week of October 19th.  Student’s testing days will remain the same, so if your child took the first test on Monday, they will test Math on Monday as well. Please see schedule in Schoology.  If available, please assist your child in logging in only and not to answer any questions, to obtain the most accurate information.

Daily assignments- Assignments and discussions are posted daily in Schoology for reading, writing and math.  If your child has not yet completed and/or submitted work, please remind them to complete schoolwork daily allowing for flexibility and breaks.  Posted work is due the Sunday at midnight to all time to complete before the new week begins. Students should expect to read every day at least 25 minutes.  Raz-kids and Epic are reading resources, if you need additional reading material.


 If you have any questions or need help, please let me know.

Thank you so much for all your help and support! I so appreciate you all.

Mrs. U.
