Weekly News: March 13-17


We will be celebrating St. Patrick's Day this Friday by wearing green, sharing our Leprechaun Traps and having fun St. Patrick's Day centers. Don't forget to turn in your leprechaun traps by Thursday at the latest! We will have a special leprechaun museum on this day and set them up to try to catch them on Friday!  


Parent Conferences for this trimester will be on a NEED ONLY basis and will be taking place the week before Spring break, March 20-24. 


Continue to work on your community service projects. These will be due early May - They will need to be turned in before May 10th to qualify for the Leadership Banquet. Please see our Community Service Tab for more information and feel free to email me if you have any questions. 



Upcoming Events:
Friday, March 17: ST. PATRICK'S WEAR GREEN DAY AND CENTERS
March 27-April 7: SPRING BREAK!!!

   

What Are We Learning This Week?:

Sight Words: SIX, SEVEN, EIGHT, NINE, TEN. 

Letter Team: EIGH (sounding like "a" like in EIGHT and NEIGHBOR).

Reading: We will read books about leprechauns and spring. We will continue to explore non-fiction texts as we discuss the main idea and key details from the text. Students will continue to read fluency passages at their levels and their self-selected good-fit books from the library. Many students have begun taking AR quizzes on books they have been reading. 

Writing: This week, we will write a procedural writing on "How to Catch a Leprechaun". Students will use their very own leprechaun traps to think of and write the steps of how they plan on catching the leprechaun. 

Math: We will continue to work hard on decomposing and composing numbers within ten. A fun game that we've been playing in class that you can play at home: Take the face cards (jack, queen, king) out of a deck of cards so that you only have A(this is our number 1)-9. Hold a card up to your forward so that you cannot see it but your child can. Have your child tell you what YOU NEED to make 10 and guess your card. Take turns playing this - we have been having so much fun playing this in class! 

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