January 19-23, 2015 Week 19

I hope that everyone enjoyed our long weekend!  Now let's get ready for the fourth six weeks.  We still have plenty more to learn between now and the end of school.  Please remember to practice reading and sight words nightly.  Students are expected to be reading on a level 10 at this time.  Please practice to build fluency and instant word recognition.

This week we will be reading "Frog and Toad Together."  It is a fictional story about two friends.  We will blend and read words with r-controlled vowels "ar" such as star, part, chart; read words with endings -ed, -ing; understand the author's purpose for writing a story; and identify past and present verbs. 

Math:  Place Value to 120

Science:  We will explore the properties of soil and the importance of water.

Social Studies:  Characteristics of the Environment (landforms, natural resources, etc)  

Upcoming Events
January 22- Report Cards
February 5- 100th Day of School  
(THINK creatively and make something that represents the number 100!)

SURPRISE SURPRISE!  We will have a "Mystery Reader" this Friday.  I wonder who it will be? Shhhh!  

Everyday we start our day off with our morning math meeting.  The boys and girls basically lead the math meeting.  They are awesome to watch!  We skip count, tell time, identify money; sing the days of the week and months of the year; identify patterns and geometric shapes; read the calendar day, month and year; discuss even and odd numbers; set and read a thermometer; interpret information from our weather graph; and make a number sentence for the number of the day.  The students are getting better and better with the skills as the days go are some fantastic number sentences that the students shared in class.           SUPER JOB CLASS!

We ended the six weeks by playing Jeopardy.  It covered the skills that we learned throughout the 3rd six weeks.  It was our first time playing it this year.  We will continue to play this at the end of each six weeks as a review of past learned skills.  It was fun and they did a great job!  

           Getting our bells ready to buzz in to our "Jeopardy" game!

We used beans to count and make number patterns on a 120's chart! 

                                 HAVE A SUPER WEEK!
