Weekly News: February 13-17


I hope you enjoyed a relaxing three-day weekend with your families. We have another three day weekend coming up next week, as there is no school on Monday, February 20th. 

We had so much fun at our field trip to the Children's Museum. Thank you to all the parents that chaperoned and thank you for all of your donations to Dollar A Day to make this field trip possible for us. Make sure to check out our pictures on ParentSquare. 

We will be celebrating Valentine's Day with fun centers on Tuesday. Don't forget to bring your valentines for the class! Students will be passing out valentines to their friends during our centers. 

Continue to work on your community service projects. These will be due at the end of May. Please see our Community Service Tab for more information and feel free to email me if you have any questions.

What Are We Learning This Week?:

Sight Words: ANY, MANY, BUT, WERE, PEOPLE.

Letter Team:  We will revisit and focus on all of our "2 Vowels Go Walking" this week. The rule is "when two vowels go a-walking, the first one does the talking, by saying it's name!" You can help your child with this by making flashcards for AI, EA, OA, OE, and UI. We will work on decoding words with this rule - like RAIN, LEAF, GOAT, TOE, and FRUIT.

Reading:
 
For the next two weeks, we will read books about George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.

Writing:  We will continue practicing writing a Step Up to Writing paragraph with a topic sentence, three things about that topic, and a conclusion sentence. All students have specific writing goals that they are working on each day. 

Math: 
This week, I will assess students on all the math concepts we have learned so far, including numbers, shapes, measurement, fluency facts through 5, addition and subtraction, decomposing and composing numbers, and base ten place value. Thank you for practicing and reinforcing these skills at home! 

Leadership: We will continue to ROAR and discuss what it means to have a growth mindset!
