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!

In School this Week...

Word Wall

This week we will be reviewing some of our more tricky word wall words.

This week's word wall words are: excited, party, laugh, second, start


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.

Spelling

A list of spelling words will come home each Monday in your child’s homework folder. There will be 6 new spelling words each week and 2 challenge words. The spelling words are chosen based on our Word Sort for the week.


This week’s spelling words are: chat, than, them, this, thank which.

The challenge words are: chant, shelf.


Please practice these words at home with your child. There will be a spelling test on Thursday this week due to Field Day!!

Shared Reading

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!

Everyday Math

In math this week, we will continue unit 10. We will be counting and exchanging coins while pretending to use a vending machine.

Science

We will complete our animal unit this week by reading about animal groups in our new issue of National Geographic.
