What Are We Learning in December?
This month in math we will continue to work on solving addition problems and will start to focus on subtraction. Students will learn how to solve both addition and subtraction equations and word problems using pictures, numberlines and equations. We will also be learning about fact families.
Fact Family Example: 2, 4, 6
2 +4 = 6 4 + 2 = 6
6 – 2 = 4 6 – 4 = 6
This month in reading we will continue to dig deep into Informational Texts. We are now focusing on how to find the main idea in a text and identifying supporting details for the main idea within the text. We will start by finding one supporting detail and then will move up to three. We will be working a lot on our written comprehension skills as well!
This month in writing we will be working on writing informational pieces based on topics that we are experts on. We will work on adding informational text features to our writing as well.
STEM & Social Studies:
This month in social studies we will be learning about the holidays and traditions from around the world and how they are celebrated.
We LOVE our Volunteers!
In order to volunteer in the school, your child's classroom or a field trip: you must have a current Cabarrus County Schools Volunteer ID card. If you do not have one, please complete the link below. If you are unsure about your volunteer status, please check with the front office.
If you would like to volunteer in your child's classroom, please reach out to your child's teacher.
SOAR Student Behavior Cards
We will be using a school wide program called SOAR to track student behavior. Each day, your child has the opportunity to earn a green or a blue square on their behavior card. Everyone starts fresh each day and the expectations will be explained on the bottom of the card.
We will be looking for students who S-Put Safety First, O- Are on task, A-Act responsibly, and R-Respect others and themselves.
Blue will mean your child had a Rockin' Redhawk day by going above and beyond. Green means they had a great day. Yellow indicates there was a warning given and I will write specifically what area a warning was given and why. Red means needs improvement and I will write specifically what area needs improvement.
We are looking forward to lots of great days!
