Week 27

Hoping for a regular week of school. It seems like forever since we have had one. Late starts, snow days, and early releases have made for some interesting times in the classroom.

This week we will be reading "Busy Buzzy Bee." It is a non fiction story that will give us lots of information about bees. The phonics focus is long o made by o-e. The new vocabulary words are:

In math, we will continue working on math facts. We are building speed by doing timed tests. Time and money are daily reviews. We should get to geometry by the end of the week.

Friday will be Monster Sandwich Day. Your child will not need a lunch that day.

Our First Grade Music Program will be Thursday, March 18 at 1:30 in the cafeteria. I hope to see all of you there.

Congratulations to Corbyn and Gavin. Both boys earned a watch for passing 100 AR tests. They seem to be reading all of the time. What a difference it has made in their fluency. It is always so exciting to watch the light bulb go off. Watching children become fluent readers is the highlight of my job!!!

Have a great week.
