Week 21

Monday is the 100th day of school. We will be doing activities that deal with 100 all day long. It should be a fun day.

We are starting a new reading book this week. It is hard to believe that we are starting book four already. This is only one more left when we finish this one. You will notice a jump in reading level in this book. It seems much harder than the last one and the stories are longer.

The book is called Time Together. Our story this week is "A Bed Full of Cats." The phonics sound is long e, made by e, ea, and ee. The new vocabulary words are:

Questions of the Week
Monday - What did you like best about the 100th Day?
Tuesday - List 5 nouns.
Wednesday - List 5 words that rhyme with me.
Thursday - List 5 words that have the long e sound.
Friday - What is your favorite TV program?

In math we will be doing the "What's My Rule?" routine. We didn't get there last week. We will continue to work on math facts daily.

Spelling is still a problem. Some are starting to catch up. This week they must be on List 14. If not, we will spend morning recess on spelling. You should have the book, I gave you with the words in it and they are also on the blog.

AR has become important. I am so glad. I think we will see reading fluency improve as they spend more time reading. Congratulations to Caden and Race for earning zipper pulls this week.

Remember that Friday is an Early Release Day.

Have a great week!
