May 22-24, 2017

Well it's all over!  We had an AWESOME year!  We learned so much and made some wonderful friendships!  

Thanks to all our parents who supported us by helping with homework, sending snacks, helping with parties and anything else that you did!  It was very much appreciated!  :)  

We ended with lots of engaging activities...

                      Look where we went...BRAUMS!
        BRAVO to all who earned 100 stickers for a BRAUMS treat!  You all worked so hard this year and deserved this reward!  I am so proud of my sweet, and motivated students!       Thanks for coming to school and being ready to learn!

May 15-19, 2017 Week 36

How can we only have 7 more days of school?  It has flown by!  We in the countdown phase and I am cherishing every last minute with my class!    

We are reading "Dot and Jabber and the Great Acorn Mystery."  It is informational fiction that tells a make-believe story, but it also gives facts and information.  Our reading skills are to read words with vowel digraph oo; compare and contrast; know when to use pronouns I and me; recognize asking questions (interrogative sentences); and Saxon Phonics.

In Math we will learn more addition and subtraction strategies.  We will learn to add and subtract 2 digit numbers.

In Science we will review the three forms of "Energy."  We will discuss light, heat and motion.  

In Social Studies we will discuss inventors and their inventions.

May 8-12, 2017 Week 35

Only 13 more days of school!  It's a bittersweet feeling because I am going to miss my kiddos so much! This is such a great class and I have enjoyed learning and watching them grow!  I am so sad but I also know we've worked very hard this year and deserve a break! I am proud of the boys and girls with the way they have bonded, loved and helped each other this year.  It's so sweet how we clap for each other's successes and care for one another.  We have made some lasting friendships! This class will always have a special place in my heart! 

We will read the same story "Mole and the Baby Bird".  It is animal fantasy because the characters are animals that talk.  We will read words with vowel patterns ou, ow; identify pronouns; draw conclusions; and practice Saxon Phonics.

In Math we will learn how to solve addition and subtraction facts; and work on related facts that are called fact families.  
6+8=14             14-8=6
8+6=14             14-6=8

In Science we will explore animals and environments.  We have been reading many books that show us how baby animals resemble their parents, and what the different kinds of animal habitats are.

In Social Studies we will review Goods and Services.  We will review and identify what is a good and a service.
