Week 10

WOW!!! We are going to have a normal week of school. It seems like it has been a while. I am looking forward to getting back to our usual routine.

This week's story is called "Where Do Frogs Come From?" It is a non fiction story about the life cycle of frogs. The kids really seem to enjoy non fictions stories. The new vocabulary words are:

Spelling will change this week. We will start individualized spelling. I expect each child to pass at least one test per week. Everyone will take Test 1 today. If they miss only 1 they can move on to the next list. Each child has a book of spelling lists in their desks to use for practice. Each parent should have a book of lists that were sent home from Parent Night. If you have misplaced yours, please let me know and I will send another. The lists are also available on a link from the blog.

Questions of the Week
Monday - It is Canning Day. List some foods that come in cans
Tuesday - List 5 words that rhyme with rug.
Wednesday - The first movie with sound was shown in 1927. What is your favorite movie?
Thursday - It is Teddy Roosevelt's birthday. What toy is named after him?
Friday - It is Make a Difference Day. What can you do to make a difference?

We have gotten a bit behind in math. This week we will be doing time to the half hour and frames and arrows. Both of these are difficult concepts. I will send a homelink so that you know what frames and arrows are. If you have time to help your child it will be to his/her advantage.

I appreciate your coming to conferences. It is always nice to meet the families of the children I teach and to have the time to sit and visit. If you were unable to attend, give me a call and we can schedule a time to meet.

Have a great week!!!
