Weekly News: March 10-14


We had so much fun dressing up and celebrating Dr. Seuss's birthday. Thank you for all of your help, time, donations, and to all of our guest readers! 

This week, we will celebrate St. Patrick's day with lots of fun centers and games, sharing our leprechaun traps, and reading and writing about catching leprechauns! We will also have a WEAR GREEN day on Friday! :) I can't wait to see all of those leprechaun traps you've been working on! Please bring your traps in to share any day Monday - Thursday. We will be trying to catch him on Friday! 

Parent conferences will continue this week before and after school. Our schedule is as follows: 

Monday

We have NO SCHOOL for the next two weeks due to Spring Break. Spring break is a perfect time to work on your Community Service Projects! Also, we will be sending home our March Journals on Friday of this week. I would love for students to keep up with their writing and write to me about all of the fun things they are doing over break. If you bring your journal back to school on Monday, March 31st, there may even be a special prize! 

Pretty shortly after we return from spring break, we will be going on a field trip to the Children’s Museum of the Desert. This field trip will take place Tuesday, April 8th and it is sure to be an exciting “hands on” experience.  We will be leaving school at 8:15 and returning at approximately 1:15. Mark your calendars and adjust schedules for the late pick up on this day and please note that your child will be missing any electives they may have on this day. Permission slips will be sent home this week. If you are interested in being a chaperone please let me know! Chaperones will be riding on the bus with our classes. Please remember that school policy states NO SIBLINGS. Thanks! We are looking forward to a wonderful field trip!

Upcoming Events: 
March 10th-13th: Parent Conferences Continue 
Friday, March 14th: End of the Trimester Awards Assembly
Friday, March 14th: ST. PATRICK'S WEAR GREEN CELEBRATION

What Are We Learning This Week?:

Sight Words: There will be no new sight words introduced until after Spring Break.  Please take this time to review ALL of our words introduced so far.  Remember, sight words are words that your child should recognize instantly.  These are not words your child should be sounding out!  Please continue to work on these words. 

Letter Team: 
There will not be any new letter teams introduced until after Spring Break.  Please take this time to review ALL of our letter teams introduced so far. Many children know all of the letter teams, but have a hard time applying them into decoding words. A great idea would be to write words (or make flashcards) with letter teams in them and have your child decode the word for you, applying the letter team. 

Reading: This week, we will read books about  St. Patrick's Day, leprechauns, and Ireland.

Writing: We will write silly stories about how to catch a leprechaun. 

Math: We will continue to work on our Daily Math Practice sheets, math stories, our fluency through 5, and composing and decomposing.
