This Week...

In Reading, we worked on choosing just right books and making choices to help us become better readers. Just right books are books that students can read but still have a little of challenge in them, new vocabulary or a more in depth message that they need to figure out inferring from the text and the pictures. We have also been reading lots of Mo Willems books to support our author study in Writing along with continuing to work on our Young Author books.

In Math, we are working on telling time by the hour and the half hour...tricky.

We've been working hard on our Career Fair presentations! Be sure to send in any costume parts on Monday, we'll be rehearsing in front of buddy classes on Monday. This way, we'll be better prepared on Tuesday!

Discovery News

Hello wonderful parents! This is Mrs. Foust with our news from Discovery. Students did an excellent job with Jump Rope for Heart! It was fun to see many of the students jumping rope for the first time using the ball ropes, long ropes, and regular jump ropes. For our Art day, students were very creative painting their own Spring pictures. Next week we will continue our new unit, Understanding our 5 Senses.
