Feb 2: Field trip to the Aquarium of the Pacific. WE ARE LEAVING AT 8:00. DON'T BE LATE FOR SCHOOL!

Spelling/Writing: We are working on lesson 20 for spelling, VCCV patterns. The test will be Thursday, February 11th.
English: Last week we wrote letters to Joel Greene, who presented to the kids, so we didn't get to possessive nouns. We will (attempt) to do that this week! :)
Science: We have completed a study guide on whales and plan on having a test February 9th. We will also begin choosing topics for the research project-DONE 95% IN CLASS.
Reading: Our next story is about Sacagawea. This will tie in nicely to our social studies curriculum!
