February 15-19, 2016 Week 23

Thanks parents for a sweet Valentine's Party!  
Spring Break is just a couple of weeks away, so we are going to learn lots and lots and lots over the next couple of weeks.  We will review some past skills this week and finish up some activities that we still need to complete.  

In Reading we will read "Mama's Birthday Present."  It is a fictional story about a little boy who doesn't know what to get his mama for her birthday.  Our reading skills will be to blend and read long ai, ay words ( the rule for spelling these words is ai is usually in the middle of the word EXAMPLE  rain; while ay is usually at the end of the word EXAMPLE  hay.); draw conclusions; review -er, -est, -dge sounds; practice saxon phonics; and practice editing and writing complete sentences using capitals, spacing, phonetic spelling, and appropriate punctuation marks.

In Math we will identify, count and learn the value of coins. (pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters)

In Science we will explore objects in the sky.
(Sun, Moon and Stars)

In Social Studies we will continue to identify cardinal directions and use map skills. (ask your child to sing the 4 cardinal directions song) :)
 Upcoming Events...
February 18 ~ Progress Reports (correction)
February 26 ~ No School / Staff Development
March 2 ~ CES Reading Day

Please send us your BOX Tops!  They are due February 23.  Thanks it will help our class!

It's beginning to look a lot like Valentines Day!

The Valentines dance was a hit!  We had some dancing stars!  Some of our friends made it to the dance off!  Congrats to all for having some smooth moves! 

Jenna, Zoe, T'Annie, Levi, and Brooks danced their way to the "dance off!"

Thanks for visiting our class!  We hope you come back next week to see what we are up to!  Parents we appreciate you very much!  Have a great week!
