Week 32

We are doing some switching around. The Forest Service cannot do us this week so we are skipping the story, "How to Be a Nature Detective." We will read it next week. We will go to the Forest Service on Thursday, April 28, at 12:15. Please watch for a field trip permission slip.

This week we will read "The Puddle". The story has a mix of realistic and make-believe parts. The sound for the is that -ge and -dge both make the /j/ sound. The vocabulary is?

Questions of the Week:
Monday - Keep America Beautiful. Tell me 2 things you can do to help.
Tuesday - Sports & Fitness Day. How many sit ups can you do?
Wednesday - National Garden Month. What would you grow in a garden?
Thursday - No Homework. Happy Easter!!!

In math we will begin the study of fractions. On Thursday we will do some serious math dealing with jelly beans. I hope it is fun for the kids.

In AR this week, Felicity earned her shirt and MacKenzie got her watch. Those that are working are really working and those that aren't are not making the progress I had hoped for. One or two are getting more excited as they get closer to their goal. I would like to see every child in a shirt by the end of the year.

Thursday is AR lunch. If you have earned a shirt and do not have it on you will not be allowed to eat in the room. Please remind your child of this. I know things get misplaced but they now have 3 days to find it.

A couple important dates: remember Friday is No School for Good Friday! The next week is early release on Friday for the school carnival that will be at our school than evening from 5:30-7:30.

Have a great week and Happy Easter!
