The Trotta News


Dear Parents,                                                       December 12, 2014


         We had a fabulous week reading The Gingerbread Man, The    Gingerbread Boy, The Gingerbread Baby, and The Gingerbread Girl. The students are enjoying these books and responding to literature by answering questions and doing fun activities to promote                  comprehension skills.  We are learning about what to do when readers come to hard words and tricky parts of books. Students should           examine the text prior to reading the words, decode unknown words, monitor and self correct while in all settings.

In math, we are working on addition and subtraction                    relationships. The students are doing a nice job connecting fact       families and to help solve addition and subtraction problems. The chapter 5 Math test will be on December 22nd.

The students will be learning about holidays around the world. We will explore different countries and learn about the different           traditions. Mr. Tanzman will be teaching us about Hanukkah traditions and making latkes on December 19th. Eating the latkes will be          optional for students.

Please complete the “My Family Traditions” with your child and return to school on Monday, December 15th.

The Holiday party will be on December 23rd from 11:30-12:30.   Mrs. Iacovetti and Mrs. Krisanda will be the helpers. Please send in any non-food items anytime.

                                                                    Mrs. Trotta
