Weekly Update #23

Hello Parents!

I hope you’re enjoying this warm weather!  Thank you for all of the sweet Valentines!

Here are some updates and important information: 

-We are in need of Clorox wipes.

-Students have brought home their Math Book A and Activity Book A this week.  These books are for you to keep.  We will begin Book B on Monday.

-Spring fever is hitting home early! Please discuss with your child about school expectations.  We have had an increase with lesson disturbances with talking out of turn and playing during transitions.  Students have been earning less and less tickets each week as these behaviors are increasing. Thank you for your help!

-Just a reminder that we have recess at 9:30 in the morning.  We go outside even when it is cold.  Please make sure that your child comes to school in appropriate outside attire for these frigid mornings.

-Thursday is a half day.  Students will dismiss at 11:45.

-Friday is a teacher workday; enjoy your day at home with your loves!

Here is an overview of what we will learn this upcoming week:

Math: Students will work on identifying numbers that are one more and one less than a given number.  They will also come groups as more and less.

Domain (Listening and Learning): We will continue Domain 8 Seasons and Weather.  Students will learn about the four seasons: winter, spring, summer, and autumn. They will also learn about sever weather, meteorology and safety in storms.  They will use the vocabulary: last, sever, and warning.  They will spend time reviewing everything we have learned and have an assessment on Thursday.

Skills: The students will continue working with the digraphs /ch/,/sh/,/th/,/qu/, and /ng/ this week.  Students will be assessed on identifying words that contain the digraphs and reading the words. They will continue reading from our “Seth” readers.

Shurley: Students have been practicing the noun jingle, verb jingle, sentence jingle and learning the three rules of a sentence.  They will continue to identify if words are a sentence or a fragment.  We are also working on identifying nouns and verbs. They will also learn about describing words.
