Fun in February

What is Going On in Room 5 This Month!

What Are We Working On?

It feels like January flew by! I hope everyone enjoyed their second winter break and had some fun in the snow!


We have started working in our brand new unit in reading. The students are going to love this unit because it focuses on animals and what makes them unique. We have already learned so much about different animals and I love hearing the students discuss how the animals are unique and special as well as how they themselves are unique and special. Ask your child what the word unique means!


We have already started a brand new unit in math. This unit focuses on measurement using different units. It is full of fun activities that I know the students will enjoy! They will be measuring things like fish, supplies in the classroom, and so much more!


In Phonics we will be finishing up our review week and moving on to Unit 5 which looks at different spellings of long vowels among other new spelling patterns! We have just started using the online tool Kahoot to review our words each week! These quizzes are fun and an engaging way for them to review their words! Keep working with your child at home by reading daily and reviewing the spelling and sight words for each week.


Finally, in Social Studies we will be finishing up our unit about our state of Maryland and will be moving on to our next Science unit!


I am so excited to continue to watch your child grow and learn new things this month!

HOMEWORK REMINDERS

Please remember to sign and return their reading calendars each day and to check their Jacksonville folders and homework journals to be sure your child is completing their homework!Red Math folders should come back every Friday so that I may check their calendar and the games they played that week. I am so excited that I was able to give out so many rewards for students meeting their reading goals this month and I know they love to see their progress tracked on our class chart!

February Fun!

Please check your e-mail and your child's JES Folder for updates regarding our Valentine exchange and our 100th Day of School! I will be sending home information regarding both of these events this week!


Also, our classroom is once again on a dry-erase marker shortage. We use these everyday so it does not surprise me how quickly we go through them. I bought a few packs to replenish our supplies but if anyone would like to donate any that would be greatly appreciated!
