World Read Aloud Day (Track 3, Feb. 19th): Thank you to all the parents that volunteered to come in and read to us on world read aloud day! As I mentioned before, we will be reading books on quality education from around the world. Students will be mapping where the stories take place and will love hearing the stories read by you! Students will also be doing some buddy reading with Mrs. Boose’s class this day. I am very excited to share my love of literacy all day!

Spring Field Trip Payment/INFORMATION : The link for our spring field trips is now open. Please use the link below to pay online, as we cannot accept cash. We will be going to the Mordecai House, Museum of Life and Science, and we will also have an in-house science “field trip.” Thank you in advance for taking care of this as quickly as possible, as the link expires quickly.

Tower of Books:  The 3rd Quarter Tower of Books Challenge was handed out to your student prior to track out. Completed challenges are due Wednesday March 20th. Please mark your calendars for our book tasting/open mic (more on this to come) this quarter will take place on Wednesday March 27th at 12:00pm 🙂 Hope to see you there!

Math– This week we are continuing to focus on problems subtracting three digit numbers. Students have learning the quick draw, expanded form, and number line strategy to solve these problems. We will have a short subtraction assessment on Friday. We will then be adding to our ability to mentally add 10 more/10 less or 100 more/100 less to a given number.

Science: We will be starting our unit on weather! Students will be recording the weather each day and learning about different weather tools.

Reading– We will continue to learn about point of view. Students were assessed on this standard before we tracked out. This week students will be holding a “mock trial” in which they will have to take on the point of view of the giant or Jack from “Jack and the Beanstalk”. This will be a week long project.

Letterland: We are on Unit 18 of Letterland.  This unit focuses on the sound of “ea” in single and two syllable words, as in head and weather.  A friendly reminder of our spelling procedures, students take their spelling notebooks home on Mondays and bring it back for a completion check on Fridays. Spelling assessments will be given on Fridays.
Writing:  We are continuing our realistic fiction writing unit with our “Night in the White House” prompt. We have been researching White House history and will begin to organize our brainstorming to create a beginning, middle, and end to our stories. This time during our revising phase, we will be focusing on adding dialogue to enhance our stories.
