Stand Up, Hand Up, Pair Up
This is an activity that we do with lots of different concepts. This week we did it to make compound words.
The kids decided to make leprechaun traps during wow time at the end of the day on Wednesday. You'll have to ask if they caught anything.
Artist at Work
We have been busy little artist the last couple weeks. I have noticed lots of rainbows and flowers on our easel this week.
Stand Up, Hand Up, Pair Up
This week in Language Arts we have had so much fun learning that a compound word is two words put together to make one word. We read books with compound words. We played stand up, hand up pair up to make compound words and we tried to use a compound word in our writing.
The sight words for next week are: away, came, have & little
If your child has not mastered the sight words for quarters 1-3 please practice them often.

In math we learned about the clock, a.m., p.m. and practiced telling time to the hour and half hour. We also learned about analog clocks and digital clocks. It is fun when I have little time keepers in the classroom that can use their new skills to keep us on schedule and arriving at things on time. Please encourage them to practice telling time at home.
This week students used their research on community helpers to begin a rough draft of a non-fiction book on the subject. We discussed all the components they needed to include to make it a non-fiction book. We look forward to possibly sharing our books at the Job Fair and again at the Pancake Breakfast.
It has been a great week, thank you for sharing your children with me!

What happened at school this week?
Want to get your kiddo talking about what they are doing here at school? Here are a couple questions/subjects to help guide the discussion:
* What kind of book are you writing?
* What is a compound word, can you give me an example?
* What time is it? Tell me about the clock?
an old mailbox (sounds crazy but I have a plan)
a pretend doctor's kit (used is fine)
