THANK YOU to all families who helped with our Valentine Party. We have certainly enjoyed all of the fun activities and the food! Thank you so much!

Reading

We finished up our unit on compare and contrast with a reader's theater presentation that focused on us using the correct emotion of the character while we read.


Reading Homework - They will read 1 passage, answer some comprehension questions and do some word work and vocabulary activities. Because this is a little more work than reading for a minute each night, it will be worth 10 points toward their reading grade each week.

Math

  • covering a design with tangram pieces
  • writing money amounts with a $
  • subtracting 2 digit numbers with borrowing

English and Writing

We finished our quick animal research projects and started our wax museum research. We will be doing all of the research and posters here at school. However, if you have resources at home or plan to visit a location relating to their character please feel free to send that to school and we will use it!


In English we began unit 4: subject/ verb agreement

Spelling Words

This IS the list for next week. We will still have a pretest on Wednesday, even though it is a 4 day week.

Homework Helps and Hints

We need to work on ABC order to the 3rd and 4th letter. Make up a list of 6-8 words that all begin with the same onset (example: car, caramel, carp, cartwheel, carpet). Have your child re-write the words in ABC order. If you make a grocery list, have them alphabetize that too!
