Week of March 30

Good Morning!
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

This week is a week of learning fun!

Don’t forget the Easter Egg Hunt is this Friday! :) I am so excited. I have lots of activities planned and would love some volunteers to help with the activities and the hunt.

Also, SOL Review Carnival night is this Wednesday, April 1. See you there if you signed up to come!

Here is a sneak peek of what we will be doing:

Reading: We will continue reading Eric Carle books and learning about his writing style. We will also continue working on practicing nursery rhymes as we prepare for our play. We will do a lot of work with comprehension and work on the sn and sw consonant blends. However, we will not have show n’ tell for items that start with these letters. We will have a mystery egg for the students to present. :)

Math: We will continue learning about time, addition and subtraction, counting, and reviewing our skills as we use jelly beans, bunny peeps, and eggs!

Science: We will continue discussing water and its properties. We will also be running an experiment on eggs to see what happens to an egg put in vinegar for 2 days. Then put in light karo syrup and then on Thursday placed in water. It is going to be ALOT of fun learning!

Social Studies: We will continue discussing maps but will finish after spring break. There is information on a map project coming home today but is not due until Friday, April 17th.

This is a fun week of learning and I can’t wait to get started!
Thank you for all of your support and please let me know if you can come in and help! If you want to help and are not sure if you are on the volunteer list, let me know and we can find out.

Have a wonderful week!

Dear Parents and Guardians,

This is our last week before Spring Break!   When we come back from break we will be very busy with the end of the 9 weeks approaching, Gifted Screening, and MAP testing in addition to our normal curriculum. Whew!

 

Please have your child read TO you every night.  They can check out books on Wednesday during library.  However, if they need a new one before then, they can go before school. Becoming a better reader is like playing a sport. The more you practice the better you get.

 

In reading this 9 weeks, we are working on the following skills:

Prefixes and Suffixes

Antonyms and Synonyms

Use pictures, captions, and charts

Use dictionaries, glossaries, and indices

Identify the problem and solution in fiction texts

Identify the main idea in fiction texts

Identify the main idea in nonfiction texts

 

In Math this week we will continue subtraction with renaming (borrowing). THIS is a VERY difficult skill for the students so they will need some help from you also. This week in science, we will review the life cycles of a plant, white tailed deer, and butterfly. In Social Studies we will compare and contrast ancient China and Egypt with our social studies benchmark on Tuesday.

 

Thank you for all of your support.
