Week 23

This week's story is a fiction story called "Tell Me a Story." It is about a little girl who likes to listen to her Abuelita (grandma) tell her stores of times gone by. The phonics sound is long i as in the word time. The new vocabulary is:

Questions of the Week
Monday - List 5 words where c sounds like /s/.
Tuesday - The first public school was established, 1865. What is the name of our school?
Wednesday - List 5 words that have the long i sound.
Thursday - The US Weather Bureau started in 1870. Write about today's weather.
Friday - Sunday is Valentines Day. What does your favorite valentine say?

We finally finished the first math book. Late starts and cancelled school have taken their toll on math. The second book doesn't have as many lessons in it as the first so we will still have plenty of time to finish before the end of the year. This week we will be learning about the addition facts table, finding equivalent sums, using fact families, and the subtraction fact table.

Congratulations to Gavin for earning an AR shirt. We now have 4 in the room and many who are working hard to get one.

The Valentine Party will be Friday afternoon at 12:15. Please send completed valentines as soon as they are finished. It is much easier if we can pass them out during the week rather than having to do all of them on Friday. We are having cookies that each child will decorate, a veggie tray and red soda. If you would like to send something feel free to do so.

Thanks so much to those of you who are able to come into the room to help. I can always use an extra hand.

Have a great week.
