February 22


Hello,


It looks like the weather once again caught us off guard, so we will roll with it.

Today is Super Twos' Day

It is Tuesday, 2-22-22.

In honor of this day, our theme will be twos.


Spelling:

Please write your words twice. if you have two different colors to write in, that would be really fun too.

Reading/writing:

Please read for at least 22 minutes.

Write: If you were a Superhero what TWO superpowers would you want and how would you use them?

Math:

Go onto Reflex Math until you get two green lights or Prodigy for 22 minutes. If you cannot get on a device - write out 22 different multiplication problems.

Your X3 packet is due tomorrow- do that first.


Videos:

There are two videos below for this week: The story video and one on cause and effect. Please watch those.


Build something using 22 objects and take a picture of it.

Since we did not send Ipads home, there will be no separate lessons on it.






Book Report Posters: Each student has been given a poster- if you have not seen one, please ask your child about it. If they do not have one, please let me know.

To go along with "I Love to Read" month, we will be completing a book report poster. I will assist students here in finding an appropriate book for this. The students will each be given a poster to complete while reading their book. We will go over the poster very thoroughly here (a couple of times.)The posters will be brought home to complete. Due: February 28th.


Please check our important dates. MCA testing dates are now on the schedule.


Thank you to those that have been able to donate AR treats.
