February 23-27, 2015 Week 24

Happy Snow Day!  I hope that everyone is having a great day off!  I stayed in and cozied up with a good book!  Since we will have a short week, we will stay on the same reading story this week and next.  We will NOT have a spelling test this week.  We will practice our new words this week and have our test next Friday.  

Our reading story is "A Trip to Washington D.C."  It is about real things that you can see in our nation's capital.  As we travel to Washington D.C., we will integrate some social studies skills that will go along with our lesson.  Our reading skills are to identify facts and details; use adjectives for size; blend and read words with vowel digraphs oa, ow; and decode three-letter consonant blends.  We will practice letter sounds, blending, reading fluency passages, and comprehension skills with daily Saxon Phonics lessons.

In Math we will identify and create objects using 2D shapes. 

In Science we will explore the weather and seasons.

In Social Studies we will learn map skills and the 4 cardinal directions.

Upcoming Events
February 27 - No School
March 5 - Report Cards
March 10 - Open House
March 16-20 - Spring Break

I am sending February Scholastic Book forms this week.  If you would like to order please send a check or money order by Monday, March 2.   Remember this is a great way to build your child's reading library!  Thanks! 

We have the BEST class!  The boys and girls are doing such a wonderful job learning skills and concepts taught throughout the year!  


Aden, MadelineK., and Evan gave super number sentences for our number of the day.  111 days in school!  Bravo guys!  :)

We learned about natural resources and how we use them.  

Great job to all!
