February 27

Monday, February 27th, 2012

This week we will be reading The Dot.  We will be continuing to work on learning the elements of art and doing activities daily that go along with those elements. Our spelling words for the week will be words with the long e vowel sound spelled ea.  In math this week, we will be making composite shapes and introducing fractions.

I hope everyone has a great week!

Welcome back to school! The kids are super excited today for their Valentine parties tomorrow.  This week we will be reading Mama’s Birthday Present.  The students will be creating and publishing an invitation for a party of their own, which should be a lot of fun for them.  Our spelling words this week have the long a vowel sound that is spelled ai or ay.  We will not be doing a new math concept this week but will be doing Valentine activities and President’s Day activities instead.  They will still be bringing home a math sheet for homework nightly though.

A few reminders:  Valentine party tomorrow afternoon around 1:45, NO SCHOOL next Monday, February 20th for President’s Day, and our field trip to the Explorium for the Explor-a-Smile program is next Friday, February 24th.

Hope everyone has a great week and a Happy Valentine’s Day!!!

This week we will not be doing a story from our reading book.  We will, however, be doing a unit on different books by the author Jan Brett.  We will be reading these books and doing several activities that go along with them.  We will also tie in some cold weather activities, even though we haven’t seen too much of it yet!!!  In math this week we will be doing some review as well.  It is time again for the students to take another common assessment, at the end of the week so we will spend these days reviewing the concepts that will be covered.

A few reminders:  Valentine party will be on Tuesday, February 14, there will be NO SCHOOL on February 20th for President’s Day, and on February 24th we will be going to the Explorium for the Explor-a-Smile field trip.  If you have not turned in your child’s permission slip and $3 for the bus, please do so as soon as possible.  Thanks!

Hope everyone has a great week!
