Notes from Mrs. Hamp

  • We are going to be doing a Flat Stanley project that uses the story we read as well as our friendly letter writing to mail our own Flat Stanley to a relative. Be looking for a paper in your child's folder that will have a place for you to write a relatives address down for us to mail our letter to. This relative should be willing to mail items back to the school and write back to your child.
  • Just a reminder that parent/teacher conferences are coming up soon. You will be getting a reminder in about a week but I wanted to put a little bug in your ear because I am super excited about talking to all of you about the great things your child is doing.
  • On a personal note: Thank you for all your support and thoughts during the scary moment for my family. I am happy to report that my dad was able to go home and although he had a heart attack he has no damage to his heart and is able to go back to everyday work within the week.

What are we learning this week:

Phonics: Vowel team wa

Math: We began topic 6 on Friday and we will continue to work on this topic. This topic will help us use mental math to add double digit numbers.

Writing: We will continue to understand the parts of a friendly letter. While we are writing a letter this week, we will also be writing an opinion piece about our favorite continent that we learned about. We will use our research to help us support our writing.

Reading: This week we will be starting the Native American portion of our unit. This unit will provide us with research on a specific tribe as well as using technology in our final presentations. As we begin, we will be able to compare and contrast two groups of Native Americans. As a class we will research the woodland and plains native americans.

Vocabulary: Native, tradition, and generation.

Big image

Our Classroom Community

During art class, the students created a community. They designed every part of this picture and each student has an individual house that they created. It was neat to see each house and their personalities through their art. It is amazing what they created and I just had to share it with you. I will leave it up during conferences so you can have your child point out their house!

Phonics List

water, watch, swan, wasp, swab, was, want, swamp, wand, wash, swat, waterproof, wanted, watts, wad


The letter W before the A causes the A to make the broad A sound (which sounds like the short /O/ sound in the word hot) instead of the short /A/ sound.
