This week we will begin a new unit called, “Construction Zone”. We will learn about building things. Using the topic, “I Can Build,” we will read stories about tools, materials, buildings, and construction. Our new letter this week is letter B. Please review this letter as well as the letters and letter sounds that we have learned this year (S, T, P, O, Y, W, U, X, F, A, Z).
*Bb Poster – Gather Bbs from newspaper or magazine headlines. Help your child make a Bb poster. You can decorate the poster by adding pictures, photographs, or drawings of things whose names start with Bb.
*Learning the ABCs – Your child will listen to the alphabet book Alphabet Under Construction this week, Page through other alphabet books together, paying special attention to the ABC order. Encourage your child to predict what letter you will read about next in the book.

This week our schedule gets back on track (barring no snow)! We begin this nine weeks with many new topics. Science we will explore plants and animals. Social Studies will dive into famous Americans in depth. Math we will be doing place value and word problems. The children have learned much, but we have a great deal to do before second grade. I continue to be saddened with the lack of participation in Reading Eggs and iXL. These are wonderful programs that will make their progress soar, while having fun. Especially during these cold months, students should be playing these games daily. Instead of watching television or playing video games, consider getting them onto the computer. It is just as much fun. They love it, but they will not think to ask you. Consider making that part of their daily routine after homework. IXL.com usernames are their first letter of first name and last name @nans, password is abc123. Reading Eggs is first letter of first name, last name, and 37 for username and password is abc123. Thank you Christopher and Logan for faithfully using these resources!hmk week 20

Congratulations Jerry Goodman, Varsity Basketball player, a nominee for the Duke Automotive – Suffolk News-Herald Player of the Week!
Jerry has emerged as a threat for the Cavaliers on both ends of the court. On Friday, he contributed 15 points and clutch defense in the fourth quarter to a 66-61 win over host Nansemond River High School. Despite his team’s 68-58 loss to Booker T. Washington High School on Jan. 17 in the Bulldog Showcase, he led his team with 16 points.
Vote for Jerry by 7 p.m. Wednesday by sending an email with the subject “Player of the Week” to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also vote online at http://www.suffolknewsherald.com/category/sports/.

Please remember that book fair projects are due this Friday. A book fair project is similar to a science fair project. You may use a trifold project display board and include characters, setting, author, illustrator and any other pertinent facts about the book you’ve chosen. If you are completing a book fair project, it can take the place of any other homework for this week. I am looking forward to seeing the projects!
