April 16-20, 2018 Week 32

Is it Spring or Winter?  Hmmm!  We can't seem to figure that out when we go out to recess.  LOL!  Whatever it is we enjoy our recess time outside!  Students are using skills that they have learned by identifying living and nonliving things.  We had some baby bunnies on the playground hiding under some mulch. They were saying  that they were living things and discussing what they needed to survive. LOL!  You can make so many things a learning experience!  

We had to cancel and reschedule the zoo trip for this Wednesday, April 18.  Please remember a sack lunch and two drinks.  Wear tennis shoes or comfortable walking shoes.  We will leave at 8:15.

We will not have any more homework this year.  Thanks parents for your help and support with reading and math.  We couldn't have done it without you!  I will continue to send a weekly newsletter every Monday.  Also remember to check your child's folder and backpack throughout the week for important school information.

We will read "Tippy Toe Chick Go!"  It is an animal fantasy story that is about a smart little chick.  Our reading skills are to read words with diphthongs ou, ow; identify the characters, setting and plot; read words with final stable -le; read and write an imperative sentence (a sentence that gives a command); and practice Saxon Phonics.

In Math we will continue to measure with nonstandard units.  We will use cubes, paperclips, marshmallows, etc.  In first grade we practice measuring with lots of objects and focus on starting exactly at the beginning of the object to the end and count how many objects long or wide it is.  

In Science we will continue to explore animals and animal habitats.  We will discuss what specific animals eat, where they live, what their babies look like, etc.

                                     A nest - bird habitat           

In Social Studies we will continue to read and label maps and places.
