Weekly Updates 2/25/19

Here are the weekly updates for the week of 2/25/19:

*Interim Reports go home tomorrow (2/26/19).

Book Fair Coin Drive- This week we will be collecting coins to raise money to help students in our school that need assistance to buy books at the book fair. The class that raises the most money gets a pizza party!

Monday – Pennies

Tuesday – Nickels

Wednesday – Dimes

Thursday – Quarters

Friday – $1 Bills

The class that brings in the most each day will receive a special treat, and the class that brings in the most for the entire week wins a pizza party. Please support our school so that each child has the opportunity to buy a book at the Book Fair.

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. If you have not handed in the lunch form for your child then I am assuming your child will be packing their lunch for both of the field trips.

Book Fair: Our Scholastic Book Fair will take place from March 5th-13th. With morning and afternoon hours available. We will have a preview day and buying day. We will need a few parent volunteers to help us on those days. I will let you know our date and time as soon as the sign up is sent out. The Book Fair Breakfast is on Friday, March 8 but we need RSVPs back by Friday, March 1 so the cafeteria staff can plan food & make final preparations.

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!

Reading– Over the next several weeks we will be focusing on fictional texts and connecting more deeply with characters. Students will be examining how characters respond to challenges in a story. They use text evidence to prove their thinking and describe characters with emotions and feelings.

Math–  We will be reviewing how to mentally add 10 more/10 less or 100 more/100 less to a given number.  We’ll then move on to applying our addition strategies to story problems.

Letterland: We are on Unit 19 of Letterland.  This unit focuses on inflections (s, es, changing the y to i and adding es).  These are words like places, reaches and babies.    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 researched White House history and have started writing from our organized ideas.  This time during our revising phase, we will be focusing on adding dialogue to enhance our stories.
