Summer Library Hours
Is it too much of a hike to visit one of the Bucks County Libraries?? Why go so far when you can come to TITUS!!!
The Titus library will be open from 9 - 11am on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday mornings this summer for your child to come check out books!
While the library is open, there are also some very exciting reading activities available for students in each grade level! Check out our summer library calendars to see what's happening at Titus!
Sign-ups for summer reading activities will be in the Rotunda until the end of the school year, or until each activity is full. Please contact Miss Quaresima, Mrs. Wallace, or Miss Brennan for more information!!
In School this Week...
This week we will be reviewing some of our more tricky word wall words.
This week's word wall words are: what, were, where, want, went
For the remainder of the year, our weekly word wall words will be included on our Friday spelling tests. The words will always be available on the wall; the children will need to locate them and spell them correctly. Please practice these words at home with your child.
This week’s spelling words are: wave, coat, sleep, cube, line, June.
The challenge words are: twine, beach.
Please practice these words at home with your child. There will be a spelling test on Friday!!
In reading this week, we are reading the story Enzo the Wonderfish! We will be practicing visualization, making connections, and summarizing. Check out R2 Fish School for a cool video of goldfish learning tricks!
In math this week, we will continue unit 10. We will be counting and exchanging coins while pretending to use a vending machine.
This week we will learn facts about amphibians. We will also create an animal book sharing what we have learned about mammals, reptiles, fish, birds, and amphibians.
