Weekly News: January 27-31

We had so much fun celebrating our 100th Day of School! Thank you for all of the help, donations, and snacks!! Make sure you check out our pictures on ParentSquare. I can't believe we are more than half way through our school year together! I am so proud of your children for working so hard and for everything they have learned so far.

This week we will be learning about Groundhog's Day and beginning to learn all about our country. We will learn all about our American symbols, including the Statue of Liberty, Mount Rushmore, the bald eagle, the Washington Monument, and so on. 

Our field trip is Wednesday! We will be going to the San Bernardino Museum. Permission Slips for this field trip will be sent home last week - if you have not turned this in yet, please sign and return by Tuesday at the latest. On this day, we will be leaving school immediately at 8:30. On this day, please pack your child a lunch in a paper bag.  No lunch boxes please. We will be eating our “sack” lunches at the museum following the tour. Don't forget to wear your ILCS shirt. Thank you to the parents that have emailed me to chaperone. Chaperones can choose to ride with us if there is space or follow the bus and will pay a cash fee of $10.00 the morning of the field trip. We are looking forward to having a great time!

What Are We Learning This Week?:

Sight Words: QUESTION, WRITE, WITH, SAW, FROM.

Letter Team:  QU (we are learning that QU are married because they are always together!) and WR (the W is silent!) 

Reading:
 
This week we are reading books all about our country. We will be learning all about our American symbols (flag, liberty bell, bald eagle, White House, Mount Rushmore, etc.) We will learn the meaning behind the words of the Pledge of Allegiance. 

Writing:  We will continue practicing writing a narrative (story from our life) and an opinion. 

Math: 
Since we have passed our 100th Day of School, we will start working on place value to the hundreds. We'll be learning that Zero the Hero is now our place holder in the tens place. We will discuss how many hundreds, tens, and ones are within a given number and create number sentences to match. You can help at home by asking your child about tens and ones. ("My number is 16, how many tens and ones does that have?" Your child should be able to tell you that it has one ten and six ones, as well as give you the number sentences to match 10+6=16 or 16-10=6.) This week, we will also continue to work on using many strategies to add and subtract.

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