Jan 30 - Feb 3, 2017 Week 22

We will be mid year testing this week in reading and math.  Please help your child get to school on time so that they don't miss any instruction.  

Since we are testing we will stay on the same reading story this week, "Frog and Toad Together."  Our reading skills are to identify author's purpose; endings -ed, -ing; verbs for past and future;
 r-controlled vowel -ar; practicing Saxon Phonics.

In Math we will continue to recognize, identify the value and count coins.  We are enjoying our money songs.  Ask your child to sing a few of them to you.  "Money Money Money Money!"

In Science we will further explore Natural Resources and focus on soil and rocks.  We will compare rocks by observing the texture, color, size.  Students will need to bring a small rock to class.

In Social Studies we will continue to discuss historical figures of the past.  We have discussed Martin Luther King Jr, George Washington, and Abraham Lincoln.  We will integrate writing about them into the lesson and create a craft likeness of them.

Upcoming Events...
February 2 - 100th Day of School (make or wear something w/100)
February 14 - Valentine Party/ Valentine Dance in gym
February 20 - No School (Staff Development)
February 23 - Math/Science Carnival 
March 7 - Open House 6-7pm
March 13-17  Spring Break

I love my class!  They have absolutely EXCEEDED my expectations in AR reading!  Each week I'm amazed at how many of them are awarded a red or blue AR shirt for earning 25 or 50 points!  You are a great example for others!  Keep up the excellent reading!  You are ALL READER LEADERS at CES!
Congrats to Charley and Aaron for being AR stars! Charley earned 50 AR points and Aaron earned 25 points! They are reading up a storm!  Terrific Job! 

During Math Marathon we were introduced to some upcoming skills.  In our class we measured using non-standard units.  We didn't use inches, we measured with paper clips.  How many paper clips long was...?

                                                        WAIT!  That's Ms. Harris' foot!

Measuring is an engaging math skill. We can't wait until we get to this unit and learn more ways to measure using other items!  

Thanks a bunch for stopping by!  Next week we will highlight 100's Day projects and activities!  Have a wonderful week!
