Hello last day of school in January! Can you believe Monday is
February already?! There’s a lot of great stuff happening in February, so get
ready for some exciting celebrations!
This week we learned to compare and contrast characters as well as
fiction/non-fiction texts, and we learned to read words with /ea/ /ee/ /e/ and
/ng/ and /nk/. In science we learned about different natural resources like air,
water, and soil, and in math we finished up the lessons for chapter 6.
Next week we will read an informative text about where food comes
from, we will work on words with /ai/ and /ay/ spelling patterns, and we will
learn to capitalize the names of months, days, and holidays. In social studies
we will begin our Chinese New Year unit and spend a day discussing Ground
Hogs. Wednesday is our 100th DAY OF SCHOOL, so we will do some fun 100
day activities during the afternoon on Wednesday.
We will take our Chapter 7 math text next week on Tuesday. We will
do the review pages on Monday as a class and students will take home their
chapter 7 math books for homework on Monday. As a result, homework will
follow this schedule: Monday – Math; Tuesday – Reading; Wednesday –
Spelling; Thursday – Reading. Let me know if you have any questions or
concerns.
Finally, as the Chinese New Year approaches we will need paper bags
from the grocery store to make dragon masks to wear during the parade!
Please send your student with a paper grocery bag by Wednesday February
3rd so we can get started on our amazing masks. Thank You!
