Weekly News: March 16-20


We will be celebrating St. Patrick's Day on Tuesday by wearing green, sharing our Leprechaun Traps and having fun St. Patrick's Day centers.  

There are no electives and there is no Success Academy this week!

This is our last week of school before spring break. We have NO SCHOOL for the next two weeks. Spring break is a perfect time to work on your Community Service Projects! I hope you have a wonderful two weeks off with your families! We will see you back on Tuesday, April 7th. 


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. Each student has a sight word review page in his or her book bag for trimester 1, 2, or 3. Once one "level" is mastered, students get a prize from the treasure box and the next "level" is given. Practice these review pages every day! 

Letter Team: There will be no 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 most 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 inside them and have your child decode the word for you, applying the letter team. (example: FARM - "I see the letter team AR inside the word FARM.")

Reading: We will read books about leprechauns and spring. 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 about Spring. 

Math: We will continue to work hard on decomposing and composing numbers within ten, as well as addition and subtraction problems, and identifying the place value (tens and ones) of two-digit numbers. Keep practicing those addition/subtraction and number bond tests that are coming home each week. 

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