Week 28

We will be starting our last book of the year (can you believe that!!) The first story is called "The Story of a Bluebird." It is a fiction story about a little bird who is afraid to fly. The sound for this story is /igh/ say long i. The new vocabulary words are:

In math we will be spending the week on geometry. Most activities will be dealing with polygons. We will continue to work on math facts and getting addition to ten to reach automaticity.

I gave away LOTS of shirts last week and I think at least one more will earn one this week. I am really pleased with the increase in fluency I am seeing because of this. Reading makes readers. It is so exciting to see this happen.

Everyone is doing well in spelling. A few are a bit behind but only a lesson or two. Some are many lists ahead.

Remember our program this week. It is on Thursday, March 18 at 1:30 in the cafeteria. If for some reason you can't make that, we will be practicing Tuesday at 1:30 and Wednesday at 9:00.

Because of the program on Thursday, we will not be doing pajama and whacky hair day. We will do the activities planned for Wednesday and Friday.

Spring break is next week. There is early release this Friday. I hope the weather is nice for us. Have a great break!!
