Happy Friday Families! I had the cutest lunch dates today, it brings me such great joy sharing this special experience with your children!
|Can't wait to see who gets to have lunch with the teachers next week!|
Next Friday is the 100th day of school, students are invited to wear a t-shirt depicting 100. Here are some examples curiosity of Pinterest.
I will be sending out a sign-up soon for some supplies we will need to make our special 100th day snack. Our service project this month will go along with our 100th day of school. We will be collecting canned goods and as a grade level our goal is to collect at least 100 cans! I know we can crush this goal!
Here's a look at next week!
Spalding: This past week we learned the phonograms “gn” (two letters) and “wr ” (two letters). “gn” (two letters) should not be confused with “kn” (two letters beginning). We also spent the week reviewing our Silent Final “e” words. Please continue to review these words at home to reinforce the jobs of Silent “e."
This week’s rules include separating syllables with the space of a clock letter. Also, rule 4- a vowel can say its name at the end of a syllable. Rule 19- “o” may say o if it is followed by 2 consonants at the end of a one syllable word. We will celebrate the 100th day of school on Friday and we are challenging students to write 100 phonograms and words during Spalding, wish us luck!
Literature: We are so excited to begin reading our second Classic to Keep, “Mr. Popper’s Penguins.” We will be reading this story for the next three weeks. We will be reading the story to the class, so no books are needed. We ask that you please hold off on reading the book with your child at home until we are finished with the entire story so we can enjoy it as a class family. We will have Mary Had a Little Lamb for our weekly poem.
History and Geography: This week scholars will be exploring the smallest continent, Australia. We will learn all about the fun animals that call the Down Under their home as well as what their habitat is like. We will discuss the Aboriginal people and the kind of music and art they create. Students will get to hear a digeridoo and make their own dot art. We will talk about one of the famous landmarks, the Sydney Opera House and the kids will create a craft depicting the building.
Math: This week we will continue to work on numbers 10-20 focusing on number order. Students will practice counting and writing in ascending order. We will work on finding the missing number in a sequence and identifying numbers that are more than others. For example, students will say “17 is one more than 16; 12 is two more than 10.” On Friday, we will be taking an assessment on place value (tens and ones) and numbers to 20.”
