Good Day Teasley Parents,
We are gearing up for our annual Veteran’s Day Celebration. Our fabulous 2nd Graders will entertain us with song, dance and spoken word as we honor those who have served our country. All are welcome to attend our celebration November 2nd at 6:30 in the Teasley Gym.
We would love to recognize moms, dads, grandparents, aunts and uncles, neighbors and family friends who have served in any branch of the military at our program. If you know of anyone who would be a great honoree, please have them to sign up using the Google Link below. We are hoping for a great turn out. It will be an honor to see and shake hands of all who have served.

It is with excitement that I let you know that we have started our Recorder Karate unit. This is an ongoing until the end of 2017. All students in 4th and 5th grades are required to play the recorder. By now you should have all signed and returned a Recorder Karate letter with a rubric and objectives outlined for the unit. Students are asked to practice six days for 15 minutes. This is how your child’s grade will be determined for this nine weeks. Failure to turn in practice logs and test recorder songs will result in a failing grade. Therefore, your child always has homework which are practicing their Recorder Karate songs.
Please help me assist your child with their music playing. I know as a team the both of us can help your child achieve a level of playing that they will be very happy with.
If you have questions, first please refer to parent letter in your child’s music folder and then email me if your question is not addressed in the letter.
This week is conference week! Remember that we are dismissing every day at 12:30 this week. If you have not yet signed up for a time, please do so! You can sign up at the link here: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090545acaf2da4f49-conference

Writing: Now that our Narratives are done, we are moving on to Opinion Writing! This week is our introduction to opinion writing, and we will learn how to form and write about our opinions.
Social Studies: Last week, we finished up our study of Geography. On Friday, we will have a test over the United States Regions and how to read a compass. A study guide was sent home today. The practice pages in the study guide do not have to be turned in and should remain at home for studying purposes. For the rest of the week, we will begin talking about European Explorers and the impact they had on the development of North America.
Math: This week in math, we will be focusing on multiplicative comparisons. An example of a multiplicative comparison statement would be “4 times as many as 5 is 20” because 4 x 5 = 20. Students should be able to write comparison statements from equations, and vice versa. Our test will be next Tuesday (October 17th).
