Weekly Updates for the Week of March 2

Good Evening!

I hope everyone is doing well and staying warm with this crazy weather.
I am also hoping we can make it through a WHOLE week of school!!!

Here is what this week has in store for our class:
Monday is Read Across America Day/ Dr. Seuss’ Birthday so we will read a lot of Dr. Seuss books and the majority of the activities will revolve around a Dr. Seuss book.

Friday is Oreo Cookie Day so I will be bringing in Oreo Cookies for the class for snack.

I will be sending home a March newsletter; I am just waiting on dates.

It looks like March 12th will be the make-up day for the 2nd nine weeks awards assembly at 11:35.

In reading we will continue working with digraphs and short vowels. Our spelling words will be the same as last week as we did not have an opportunity to test on them along with the sight words. Show n Tell will also be the same as last week since we did not have the chance to share (something that starts with one of the digraphs: sh, wh, th, ch). There will not be any word sorts this week for homework as we continue to get caught up.

Math: We will continue working on telling time, addition, and subtraction. We will hopefully get through a whole week of guided math groups. :)

Science: We will learn about magnets!

Not much new as we did not get to a lot of things last week.

Have a wonderful week!

Mrs. Williams
