This week we spent time working in centers. We created words when given only word endings, we manipulated pipe cleaners to spell words, we tested each other on our high frequency words and we decomposed words into individual sounds. It was a great week for reviewing and getting extra practice with specific skills.
Spelling: Unit 6 Week 2
We will continue with Health next week.
I will keep the Second Step Curriculum This Home Link button here in case anyone has yet to complete them.
Reading Calendar and Folders
The Rox Reading program Week 2 form needs to be returned on Monday! Please finish filling it out and return it so your child can have a chance to win a Rox drawstring bag and 2 tickets to one of their home games in June! Remember to also record these minutes on their April Reading calendar.
More children have started on A.R. (Accelerated Reading). Be on the look out to see if your child is next! Please make sure that your child understands the story before they bring it back to test on. Thank you!
Next week Friday will be our class mass. Mass parts have been sent home. Please spend some time practicing with your child so that they know their part well. They are super excited to be leading the liturgy one last time this school year! I hope you can all make plans to attend.
Your child's nightly homework is to read at least 5-15 minutes per night to be marked on their Reading Calendar. This number will increase as your child becomes a better reader!
Math homework comes home daily. Please assist your child with this as needed. No homework will be sent home on Fridays and when we have a test or another form of assessment.
We have Phy Ed. on Tuesday and Thursday. Please make sure your child has tennis shoes to wear on these days.
**It is highly recommend that students have appropriate shoes for running and playing safely at recess time too!**
Isabella and family!
Here is a fun and simple origami site! We read a story about origami this week and it really sparked an interest. We made a few things at the end of today and I thought I would share it with all of you. I hope you enjoy it! Remember, you will need to start with a SQUARE sheet of paper!
May the Risen Christ fill your heart with joy!
