What's happening this week...
Language Arts- Our spelling pattern this week will focus on words that have the short oo sound, as in pull and book. We are continuing to learn all about adjectives. Last week we concentrated on adjectives and our five senses. This week we will look at adjectives that can describe how many and what kind. It is very important that students can identify what noun the adjectives are describing as well.
Math-- Last week week we began our timed tests over -2's and the 100 addition problems on the reversed side. I do not give both timed tests on the same day. They did very, very well overall on the subtraction! However some of us did not do well on the addition. I cannot stress enough how important it is to be fluent in their math facts. Next year they will be expected to become fluent in multiplication facts. Our unit over triple digit addition is going very well. Students are rocking the concept of regrouping tens AND ones. I am very proud of them. The only mistakes I see are those that still have issues with their math facts. We will have a our Math Test on TUESDAY, January 20th.
Social Studies/Science-- Woo Hoo! Oglethorpe and Savannah rock! We have learned so much about how and why the settlers came to Georgia. Now to find out how and what they do once they get here. I took them on a virtual field trip of Savannah to look at the squares, and the historical markers of the landing of the settlers and the grave site of Tomochichi. They loved seeing the cobble stone streets and how the wall behind River Street is the bluff in Yamacraw Bluff we have been referring to.

It is officially Cookie season and our troop goal is to sell 2,000 boxes. With the funds our troop will earn from cookie sales, the girls have discussed that they would like to do the following service project(s) – buying/donating books to schools/organizations that really need books to allow more children to read, buying/providing coats to organizations that service and work with children, and/or buy/donate food to organizations that prepare/provide meals.
