Your new Take Home Book is due on Friday. Thanks so much for returning them on time this week!

There will be no school NEXT FRIDAY April 3rd.  Spring Break is Monday April 6 thru Friday April 10th. School Resumes on Monday April 13th.

This week in Language Arts, we will continue to work on the story "Goldilocks and the Three Bears".  We will use puppets to act out the story, create a story map showing characters, setting, and sequence, and compare this version of the story to other versions.

In Math, we continue to work with "teen" numbers (10 plus another number), and review our addition facts.

In the next two weeks we will being testing our sight words for the third marking period.  You will receive a list of words your child needs to practice over the break to be retested when we return.

Have a great week!

Hello Families!

Don’t Forget Swimming on Thursday, March 19th!

This week in Language Arts, we will be working on words that begin and end with the letter G.  We are continuing to put story events in order (beginning, middle, end – sequence).  We are working on using complete sentences in our writing, and making sure each sentence starts with a capital letter and ends with a period or question mark.

In Math, we are finishing our unit on adding groups up to 10.  We will begin our next two units on “teen numbers”, and be able to show a teen number is 10 plus another number. Ex. 15=10 +5.  We also have a special St.  Patrick’s Day graphing activity with a yummy snack!  We will be sending home an extra set of flash cards this week to continue practicing memorizing our addition facts with answers to 5.

In Science we will read about the life cycles of various animals (chickens, horses, frogs, butterflies).

Have a great week!
