A note from your teacher...

We had a great first week back from break! As a class we had to get back in back into our normal routines and get back to learning! Our short week was filled with starting our new reading unit, continuing subtraction and starting our writing unit on opinions. Ask your child about our new read aloud; The Spiderwick Chronicles, Book 1The Field Guide is a book about three children who have discovered something interesting about their new home. As a class we are loving it so far!

Every Monday we use index cards to make our word study cards. Because of the high demand, we are in need index cards . If you would like to donate some to the class that would be great.

We will be done with testing on Monday. Look for an email on Tuesday will score reports!

As always if you have any questions or comments please contact me!

Have a fabulous weekend!
