May 4-8, 2015 Week 33

We are in the countdown stage!  We have made it to the point of NO MORE HOMEWORK!  We have 24 more days but who's counting?!!!  NO really, I find this time to be very bittersweet because we all are looking forward to summer vacation but at the same time I know that we will miss each other! :(

In class we will start our "Marvelous May" activities. Each day the leader will get to pull an activity that we will do on the next day.  We have lots of fun activities like shaving cream art, luscious lollilops, bubblegum, eat lunch outside, partner read with another class, movie and popcorn, etc.  Our leader last Friday pulled "shaving cream art" for Monday!  

In reading our story is "Alexander Graham Bell: A Great Inventor."
We will blend and read words with diphthongs "aw, au";  read and sequence stories; adverbs; and continue to practice Saxon Phonics.

In Language Arts we will replace our weekly spelling tests with spelling dictated sentences.  I will call out words from the word wall in the correct sentence order and students have to write and spell the words correctly.  They will be graded on capitals, spacing, spelling, and sentence structure.  

In Math we will learn how to add 3 numbers; we will also learn how to add and subtract 2 digit numbers.  Bravo to the boys and girls for being able to identify the relationship between numbers in a fact family!   We will play "Scoot" addition and subtraction games.

In Science we will continue to review living organisms and nonliving objects. We will study plants.  We will learn about animals and their habitats, their babies, and what they eat. Remember that the zoo animal report is due May 11.  I know that the reports are going to be great!

In Social Studies we will learn about the inventor Thomas Edison.

         And our "Mystery Reader" was ... Mrs. Taylor!
 Our terrific student observer from Texas A&M!

She is not Ms. Harris but holding a precious gift that she made me!

As we countdown let's not forget to read every night!  
Please watch for your child's red homework folder to come home with important class and school information.  Blue folders will still be sent home on Fridays.

A big Thanks for being so supportive with homework this year!  We couldn't have done it without you!  We love our parents!  :)
