Week 31

Our story this week is a non fiction piece called " How to Be a Nature Detective."The phonics sound to review is long o. The new vocabulary words are:

Fractions will be the focus in math this week. There will be one review of "What's the Rule." We will be doing halves, thirds, and fourths as well as finding a fraction of a group of objects.

We will be walking to the Forest Service to see the mural on Friday morning. We will leave school between 8:45 and 9:00. The mural has lots of animals in it. It will be a good place to practice being a 'nature detective.' Please be sure your child has on comfortable walking shoes and a jacket if necessary. We will plan on going even if it is windy.

AR has really been going this week. I have given away several shirts and at least 3 watches. It is so fun to see them work for something that they want and are practicing reading at the same time.

Remember that Thursday is AR day. PLEASE WEAR YOUR SHIRT IF YOU HAVE ONE. Everyone got to eat in the room again this past week.

We have had a few instances of needing to reach parents. Please remember that our phone at school comes up as an unknown number. We may be trying to reach you for a serious or emergency situation. Please pick up.

Have a great week!
