Week 9

This is going to be an unusual week. Since last week and this week have become 3 1/2 day weeks, I am making some changes. We will be finishing last weeks story "Boots for Beth, and reviewing the vocabulary and phonics sound /th/. We will also start our new story "Space Pup". The phonics sound is short u. We will also finish this story next week. There will be no spelling list this week. The vocabulary list is long:

Questions of the Week:
Monday - Ready, Set, Relax Day. . .no homework
Tuesday - Tell me 5 words that rhyme with pup.
Wednesday - Tell me 5 words that have the short u sound.
Thursday - Fall Break. . .no homework.

In math, we will be doing two very difficult concepts: time to the half hour, and frames and arrows. Frames and arrows is a concept of skip counting and figuring out the rule being counted by.

Please remember your conference time. If you have forgotten please call me. I will be contacting those of you who missed your appointments. We really do need to visit at this time of year.

Thanks for all of your help on the field trip. It would have been much better if the wind had not come with us!!!

Does anyone want to be the room mom? I have the plates, cups, etc. but would love it if someone would plan the party. Give me a call if you would like to do that.

Have a great week and fall break!!!
