General News

We finally made it past 100 days of school!!!! This weather has definitely made lesson planning difficult to say the least. Plans are looking good for next week though. We are going to wrap up our insect unit discussing bees and move into some Valentine's Day literature and activities.

Speaking of Valentine's Day... We will make our own bags in the classroom. I am sending home a list of students today in your child's folder. Please send in Valentines on Friday. We will deliver them that morning. If you have an extra, we do have a high school helper, Ms. Libby.

Don't forget we will be singing the National Anthem at next Tuesday's high school boys basketball game. The kids and Mr. Scott have been practicing and they are ready! T-shirts should be back by that day. Please wear the shirt that night.

Literacy

Guided Reading- We continue to work at student's levels within groups. When a book comes home that seems "easy," celebrate! Our goal is for books to be easy to read, especially when we are working on other concepts such as punctuation or comprehension. Just a reminder... don't cover the pictures. We want students to use this strategy to help them when they get to a word that doesn't make sense. Even if they seem to be zipping through the story, don't cover the pictures. Instead, make sure they are reading like they talk.


Writing Workshop- We are wrapping up our unit and getting ready to publish a story next week. We will celebrate by sharing them with our pre-k friends.


Revolving Door Literacy and Math Night- Due to the snow days and the many events next week, we have postponed it until the 20th at 6:30. Our apologies for any inconvenience.

Math

We finished our unit on measurement and next week we begin our unit on addition and subtraction.
