March 9-13

This Week in Room 300...

This week we will begin wrapping up our 9 week skills. It is hard to believe we only have about 2 weeks left in this quarter!

Math: Students will be practicing writing numbers 0-20. This seems simple, but in order to get a 3 on their report card, they must write all of the numbers correctly without reversing any of them at all. When you are helping them with homework each night, make sure they have no numbers reversed.


Writing: Students will be practicing informational writing about national holidays.


Social Studies: Students will learn about national holidays such as Memorial Day, Veteran's Day, President's Day, etc.


Reading: We will be discussing text features in informational texts.


There are no new sight words this week, so it is very important that you use that extra time to practice all the sight words with your child. If your child had any words highlighted on their report card last nine weeks, they will be reassessed on those as well!

Snow Day Make-up Days

In case you have not heard already, we will have to make up the 2 snow days from the past couple of weeks. Instead of the last day of school being on June 3rd, it will be on June 5th. Of course if you had vacations of events planned, that is understandable, and those days will just be marked as unexcused absences. I will still probably have our Kindergarten Awards Day and Party earlier in the week in case some people will not be able to make it to those last couple days of school. Let me know if you have any questions!

Pictures

If you have any pictures from field trips, parties, etc, I would love for you to send them to me! I try to compile pictures from throughout the year, and we also need them for the yearbook. Thanks!

Reminders!

  • We have sent home reminders to families that owe money for snack. Keep in mind that we use that money to buy snacks for the children to eat everyday and to buy some supplies for parties/fun activities. If we are not receiving that money, we cannot provide snack once it runs out. You do not have to pay it all at once, but please pay what you can at the moment.
  • Students will be off on Friday, March 20th for a teacher work day.
  • Sneakers need to be worn every Friday for PE
  • Thursday, March 12 is Spearman's Variety Show at 7:00pm in the gym.
