Week 23

This week's story is a non fiction one called "At Home Around the World." The phonics emphasis will be on y making the long e sound as at the end of the word bunny. We will also review the long vowel sounds we have had so far. The reading level of this story is much higher than the one we had last week. The vocabulary words are:

Questions of the Week:
Monday - It is School Nurse Day. List some ways she helps us.
Tuesday - Use the word above in a sentence.
Wednesday - Tell me 5 words that end with y making the long e sound.
Thursday - Use the word different in a sentence.
Friday - It is Chocolate Month. What is your favorite thing made from chocolate?

We will start our new math book this week. We will be doing probability, turn around facts, the addition/subtraction table and number collection boxes. Along with this we will continue working on problems solving, graphing, and building speed with math facts.

Many have really worked hard to catch up in spelling. We should be on List 16 this week at the least. That is only passing one list per week since we have started spelling. I would hope that many can accomplish more than that.

AR is moving along well. Several have really caught the bug to earn a shirt or a watch or more. Trevor has earned his zipper pull but is having to wait until my new order comes in. I'm glad he is being patient. I'm sure Jessica has her watch now and Addie earned a Sonic card for passing 150 tests before she moved.

Please start sending valentines before next Monday. It is really hard to get them all passed out on one day. Our party will be on Monday, Feb. 14 at 12:10. Please have your child put his/her name on the card, so we can do an activity with the cards after recess.

Remember Friday is an Early Release Day.

Have a great week.
