Week 35

It is hard to believe that we are at the last story in our reading series. It is an informational fiction piece called "Baboon". Parts of this story are made up but parts give information about different African animals. The phonics skill is /oo/ making the sound it does in the word cool. The new vocabulary is:
  • against
  • careful
  • fine
  • quietly
  • shook
In math we will be starting double digit addition without regrouping. 

Please try to help your child to get to list 25 in spelling.  That is the goal for the year.

On Friday we will do a Read-a-thon.  Your child may bring a pillow and blanket, etc to be comfy to read.  Hopefully we can finish up some of those AR reading goals.  Please have your child bring a snack to share so they can munch while they read.

Once again the calendar has changed.  Please note these changes.
  • May 16 - Walk to the park.  The kids will need a lunch and to wear their class shirt.  Makes for easy finding of them in a giant group.
  • May 17 - Trip to the new RVES to tour the building. Last AR Lunch in the room.
  • May 18 - Monster Sandwich Day.  Class shirt requested. Read-a-thon.
  • May 22-24 - Early Release for packing and moving.  Notice the addition of Tuesday also.
  • May 25 - Last Day
Have a great week!
