Feb 29 - Mar 4, 2016 Week 25

We are hoping that this week all of our little friends are well and back at school.  We miss you!  

This week we will read a non-fiction story about things to see in Washington D.C.  Our story is titled "A Trip to Washington D.C."  Our reading skills are to blend and read long o words spelled with vowel digraphs oa, ow; read words with three-letter blends; identify facts and details in a story; use adjectives to describe the size; and saxon phonics. 

*Spelling Rule for vowel digraphs oa, ow*
oa is usually in the middle of the word like (road)
ow is usually at the end of the word like (snow)

In Math we will continue to add like and mixed sets of coins.  We will also collect data and use it to make a graph.

In Science we will identify objects in the sky such as the sun, moon, and stars.

In Social Studies we will learn more about the physical characteristics of our environment. Landforms: mountains, hills, valleys, and plains

Upcoming Activities...

March 2 ~ Dr Seuss Read Across America
March 8 ~ Open House 5:30-6:30
March 14-18 ~ Spring Break
March 22 ~ Kona Ice Snowcones

Thanks to all who sent us your BOXTOPS!  

Kaede read a book to us this week. She was confident and poised just like a little teacher!

We love reading!

We also had up and coming author/school board member Kathleen Hooten read her unpublished book to us.  It was about her show goat Cabo.  We gave it 2 thumbs up!  I'm sort of partial to her because her son Luke was in my class 10 years ago!!!  Thanks for giving our class a first peek at what is going to be a big hit!  :)

Hold on because this is going to be another busy and activity filled week!  We have Jenna, Levi, and Aboss earning their blue AR shirts on Monday!  So proud of them!  Look for their pictures next week!  On Wednesday get ready to read read read all day as we celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday.  
LAST but NOT least...

A BIG THANKS to all my sweeties for the wonderful and sweet gifts that I received on my birthday February 25.  I have the BEST class in the world!  I love you guys!!!

I hope that each and everyone has a great week!
Thanks for stopping by!  See you all next week!
