May 16-20, 2016 Week 35

We are in the final countdown until school is out!  As of today we have 12 more days of school!  I'm sad that we will be leaving each other soon.   :(  

Last week we were very busy with Math and Reading Benchmark assessments and online STAR tests.  I am happy to say that the boys and girls did a great job!  They took their time to read the passages and questions, they showed their strategy skills when solving the math problems.  They made significant growth on the Literacy STAR test!  Congrats to you all!  :)

Your child has a "Glow Bowling" permission slip  that needs to be signed and returned ASAP.  We will go bowling next Monday, May 23. We plan to go to the Sulphur Springs park afterwards.  Please send your child a sack lunch with a drink on that day.  I will send a reminder on Friday.  

This week we will read "Alexander Graham Bell." It is a biography of his life.  We will blend and read words with vowel sound aw, au; read words with vowel sound -al (ex:ball); sequence events in a story; identify adverbs; and practice Saxon Phonics.

In Math we will keep practicing addition and subtraction facts, doubles, and fact families.  At home please make up number facts and let your child solve them.

In Science we will explore animal habitats and the environments around them.

In Social Studies we will continue to learn about inventors and their inventions.  Our main focus is Alexander Graham Bell and Thomas Edison. Last week we talked about how technology has changed over the years. We are going to make a graph to see if more people used rotary dial phones, push button phones or cell phones when they were younger.

May 23 - AR Glow Bowling

 Aww my sweet class surprised me with a banner that they made in ART!  I love them!!!

We love our wonderful moms!  I hope you liked your Mother's Day cards and are cashing in on the jobs that your child said that they would do for you!

Roland and Saniyah were all smiles because they earned their 25 point AR shirt!  Bravo!  You guys worked very hard! :)

 Look who our "Mystery Readers" were last week...
Thanks Mr. Daniel!  You were such a fun and exciting reader!  We loved listening to you read 
"Tyrone and the Swamp Gang!"

Thanks Mrs. Ericka!  You were a great enthusiastic reader and we loved the book "Wish Come True Cat." You did a super job asking the story questions!  You are always so sweet!
