Haiti Passion Project

I am Lania from Mrs. Wallace's class.

Did you know it is almost one month until spring vacation? My family and I are doing something extra special. We are traveling to the country of Haiti, where I was born. Haiti is very beautiful, yet a poor country. The children need our help. They told my mom they really need backpacks and peanut butter. Can you help by donating a new or gently used backpack and a fresh jar of peanut butter? We will be collecting these items until the 22nd in a box by the front office.

Thank you TCE cardinals and together we will bless Haiti!

Optional Spelling Practice at Home!

We will work with these words for two weeks at a time. Feel free to practice these sorts at home! Also, I will not be giving spelling tests over these words this year, but rather check with each student by checking to see if they can spell the words based on their spelling patterns.

Repeated Sort: Students will sort their words. Then check their words using the answer key. Then sort their words again!

Draw and Label: Students choose 10 of their words. Then they will draw a picture of each world and label it.

Blind Sort: Using given guide words, or headers, students spell or write in words in the correct category as a partner calls each word aloud without showing it.

Writing Sort: Students write their words under the correct category.

Speed Sort: Students sort words quickly under the correct categories (use a timer to see how fast they can do it!) Students love to beat records and to set goals for themselves.

Word Hunt: Students hunt through their own reading and writing for words that are additional examples of the sound, pattern, or meaning unit they study!

Buddy Sort: Using the given headers, students sort their words with a partner, then discuss. They will then check their work with their answer key.

We are Learning

Reading

This week, we are reading to get more ideas on how to become a better writer. We have been focusing on voice, vocabulary and different perspectives. We are working in small groups, partner reading, Lexia, RAZ kids, reading to self and writing about our reading on a daily basis in reading rotations!

Writing

We are working so hard on our Young Author books and can not wait for you to see our finished product. These will be displayed at the Pancake Dinner the evening of April 10th. Hope to see each of you then!

Math

We are continuing our work with money. We are counting, finding equivalent sums, calculating, and shopping. These are fun things to practice with money at home as well! Next week we will be working with arrays, time and shapes in Unit 5. If you'd like to do extra work at home you can do the pages in the Homelinks workbook.
