February 6-19, 2017 Week 23

We made it to the 100th day of school!  Where has the time gone?  Now we will start out countdown until Spring Break!  We will have some busy days until then.

We will read "I'm a Caterpillar."  It is Literary Nonfiction and is told like a story, but it's about something that really happens.  It is about the life cycle of a caterpillar.  Our reading skills r-controlled vowels er/ir/ur/; fact and opinion; verbs: am is, are, was, were; contractions; and Saxon Phonics.

In Math we will learn about financial literacy.  We will learn to identify goods and services, needs and wants, and how to make choices about what we need.

In Science we will explore rocks.  Please have your child bring a small rock to class.  We will examine and compare types of rocks.  We will also begin our study of conservation - Recycling.

In Social Studies we will identify landforms such as mountains, hills, valleys, plains etc.

We tackled the Math and Reading Benchmark Tests.  We used magnifying lenses to carefully double check our answers!  :)

Happy 100's Day!

Our 100's Day Projects were Out of Sight!

                                      Greenlei was just 6 yesterday and today she looks 100!


Our Primetime Reading group went on a word hunt to find 100 words,
 Charley and Eli were the first to write 100 words! 

We are 100 days smarter!  We can count to 120, tell time to the hour, READ, add and subtract, identify story details, name the seasons, identify coins, tell facts about certain historical figures. That's just part of what we know. Just wait until the end of the school year! BAM!  We are 100 days SMARTER!

Let's not forget we are AR whizzes!  Congrats to sweet Bella for earning 50 AR points!She will get her AR shirt on Tuesday.  
See Bella in her AR shirt next week!
