Young Author Books

Beginning the week of May 18th until we are finished, I am requesting any volunteers that might be able to come in anytime/anyday to help put together our Young Author books. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Please send me an email if you are able to help.

Thank you!

Please check with your child to see if they might need a new set of markers to get them through their beautiful Young Author Book illustrations.

What's New This Week?

Adventure Aquarium Field Trip

Our field trip will be this Thursday! Please remember to pack a brown bag lunch with all items that are disposable and your child's name written on it. We will not be stopping in the aquarium gift shop, so there is no need for your child to bring any money with him/her. We will be boarding the bus at 9:15, so please have your child at school no later than 9:05. If you plan on meeting us at the aquarium please email me to let me know. Thank you!

Language Arts

Our main story selection this week is How Groundhog's Garden Grew. Our Essential Question is "What steps would you take to plant a garden?" Skills this week include aw,au, o, a and irregular verbs.

In writing we are busy working on our Young Author book projects. We can't wait to share them with you!

This week we will continue learning about numbers and patterns to 1,000. This is a lengthy topic, and we will be working with place value to the hundreds place, reading & writing numbers to 1,000, comparing numbers, patterns on a hundreds chart, and ordering numbers.
