I hope you all had a great weekend! We are ready for a great week in school. The students are working so hard this quarter. We are all looking forward to a break next week!
Please remember, the MLK Jr. or Jackie Robinson cereal box projects are due THIS Wednesday, February 13. There is no math blast off due this week and I will not send home daily homework.
Also, we will celebrate Valentine’s Day on Thursday after lunch. We will be doing some fun Valentine’s themed stations and the students will have a chance to pass out their Valentine’s cards and treats to their friends then. Students need to make sure to bring enough to share with all 18 students.
Friday, February 15 is STEM Expo Day! The students did a great job putting their puffmobiles together and they are so excited to show them to you! A few students are still working and need to finish them up at home. We want to invite all parents to join us this Friday in the cafeteria from 9:30 to 10:15.
Thank you to Mrs. Frazier for being our mystery reader this past Friday!
This week in school:
Reading: We are continuing our focus on comparing and contrasting versions of the same story. We are also continuing to learn about the characteristics of fairy tales and discussing the different points of view of characters in a story. This week we are reading various versions of the classic fairy tale, “Cinderella”.
Writing: We will be writing to support our opinion about which sweet treat is the best.
Grammar: We are continuing our focus on adverbs which describe verbs. We’ve discussed how adverbs can describe when, where, or how an action occurs.
Phonics: Our spelling and phonics focus this quarter is on bossy r words. We will continue to review this skill in class.
Math: We will be starting our unit on strategies for subtracting three-digit numbers this week. Students are doing a great job with these difficult math problems. There will be no math blast off or regular math homework due this week.
Social Studies: We are finishing up our discussions about Juliette Gordon Low this week and the work that she did to start Girl Scouts. We will also be presenting our cereal box projects towards the end of the week.
