Snow Make- up Days
High 5 Behavior
We have been reviewing our classroom expectations since returning from break. With the unpredictable weather it has been very hard for the kids to get back into the “normal” school routine and remembering appropriate classroom behavior. Please help me to remind your child as they leave for school to stay focused when they are here. Thank you for your help and support in this! Spring is just around the corner!
Enjoying the Ipads as part of our centers this week.
Using highlighters to help us locate answers to questions.
Thank you to a past student who came to read to us.
Coming up next week....
Reading -We will continue talking about identifying the main idea and supporting details in the stories we read. When reading at home ask your child about the main idea of the story.
Spelling - New spelling words were sent home Tuesday for the test on Friday, January 30th.
Our sight words for the next 2 weeks will be:
Writing - We will continue working on our fiction stories. These stories are taking us a little longer as we talk in the story about the characters problems and how to solve them so that the reader is not left wondering what happens. The children are really enjoying their writing as it is totally up to them how they create their story. :)
Math - We will continue working on those addition and subtraction skills, this time focusing on facts up to 20. We will be working on fact families and finding missing parts of both addition and subtraction sentences. It is still very important to be practicing those math facts at home.
Rocket Math: We started Rocket Math this past week. You will see sheets coming home that your child has completed in class. At the bottom your child's goal is written. This goal may be adjusted as we continue through this nine weeks. Feel free to copy the top 1/2 of the page and have your child practice. They are given 1 minute to complete their set goal.
Science - We will continue our first science topic about matter by exploring solids, liquds and gases.
