This Week in 123
In math, we continue with counting and looking at numbers on a number scroll, we will review the tens, and build numbers by using tens and ones.
Our themes for this week are pets and Easter. We will do a cool math project to go along with our Easter theme, and then make an Easter bunny decoration on Thursday.
We did an OUTSTANDING job practicing our lockdown drill last week. The students were so quiet that the police officer in our room did not even know we were there! We even heard him jiggle our door handle. Mrs. Kamrath said the whole school did an excellent job!
On Friday, we cleaned out our Unit 6 book boxes, and all the decodable readers were sent home (the little black and white printed booklets). These are great practice for your child to do at home...they are a great review of the high-frequency words, especially because these words are used in context.
REMINDER - this Friday, April 18th, the students are dismissed at 11:00 a.m. Lunch will not be served at school. Please let me know if your child's after-school plans are different than normal so we can plan accordingly.
Now that we are experiencing all sorts of weather, please be conscientious about what your child is wearing each day. I do not think snow pants (and possibly winter boots) are necessary any more, unless of course we end up getting any more snow this month (knock on wood!). Please use your best discretion with the clothing and gear your child is coming to school with. Rubber rain boots are great this time of the year with the rain and mud, but not necessary. Trust me, we have had numerous discussions already this spring (and will continue to have more as needed) regarding the puddles and "muddles" during recess time. We also have a policy that students need to have a light jacket or sleeves unless it is warmer than 55 degrees. Thanks for your help with this!
