Our Weekly News_January 21st
Welcome back after an amazing three day weekend. I hope everyone was able to enjoy the holiday. We are so excited to get our week going, woo! Last week we celebrated the 100th day of school. I sent emails of pictures yesterday. I hope you enjoyed looking through them. The kiddos all had a great time!
–This Friday, January 24th, our field trip forms and money are due! Please turn those in as soon as possible. If you need more time or help with the process, please let me know too! I would love to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
-February 5th- Spring Pictures, information and order forms will go home today
What are we learning?
-We are rocking it out in math. The students are doing well with the rotations. They are getting the intervention and enrichment they need, yay! Mrs. Avery and I are reviewing multiplication and teaching the students different ways to solve for the products.
-This week, we are combining reading and social studies. We are learning different vocabulary words through Martin Luther King, Jr. articles. We have watched videos, learned how to close read (thinking with our pencils) and we are learning great facts along the way. We are also taking this learning and applying it to our writing. Our writing, will focus on what we will do so that we can achieve our own dreams. We are also learning about the Chinese New Year. It has been a great couple of days talking about history and the events that take place in the month of January.
-We did not take a spelling pretest this week. We are learning difficult spelling words and the sounds vowels make when they work together. We have 24 words in both groups that are in the students agendas. We will take a spelling test on Friday focusing on those rules. I’ll pick 12 of the 24 words this week. It is different than usual because I want to see if they’re understanding the rules or just memorizing the spelling itself.
Thank you for sharing your kiddos with me and your continued support!
Have a wonderful day,
