Week 35

This week we are reading "Sleep is for Everyone." It is a nonfiction story giving information about why sleep is important, and giving facts and details about sleep. The phonics skill is the short e sound made by the letters /ea/ as in the word head. The New vocabulary is:

Questions of the Week:
Monday - Tell me 3 words that rhyme with head.
Tuesday - What would you do with $20.00?
Wednesday - Look out your window. Tell me 3 things that you see.
Thursday - What do you look forward to doing this summer?
Friday - What was your favorite part of Dome Day?

We are down to only 3 students who don't have AR shirts. Mrs. Sloane is working hard with them to accomplish this goal. I have given away several in the last 2 weeks. It will be wonderful for everyone to do that.

Some of us still need to work harder at spelling.

Remember that Dome Day is Friday. If your child does not have a signed permission slip, he/she will not be allowed to go. Please return them ASAP. It is a fun day for everyone. Your child will need a lunch that day. You can get one from the cafeteria but they usually aren't too good. Part of the fun of going on a field trip, is getting to choose what is in the lunch.

It is hard to believe that the year is almost over. What a great ride!!!

Have a great week!

We will reach the review chapter in math this week. Time and money remain the skills that need work. Most are comfortable with time on the hour and half hour. The quarter hour and 5 minute intervals are still a work in progress. Please use opportunities for your child to practice counting money over the summer break.
