Marco's Fundraiser!

Just a reminder that Jackson is having our Marco's pizza fundraiser this Monday Feb. 24th-Wednesday Feb. 26th. If you order a pizza from Marco's pizza and say your from Jackson Elementary you will have your pizza delivered in a box decorated by your child.


A portion of the proceeds will go straight to Jackson Elementary! Make sure to say your child's name so they can deliver the decorated box. Please let me know if you have any questions:)

What did we learn this week?

Reading: We did an author study on Laura Numeroff. We compared and contrasted different books of hers. We also began our unit on Symbols of America that we will finish next week.


Writing: The students are continuing to draw two pictures and write two sentences on their own. We talked about staying on topic with multiple sentences. We also began book reviews. The students are learning how to write the "title" of the book, their "opinion," and recommendation.


Phonics: We learned the poem "An Elephant Goes Like This" and the students found rhyming and HFW. The students also learned the -ig word family. We also continued working on CVC words.


Math: We continued working on addition and subtraction by using manipulatives and learning some fun new math games.
